Join me for Eggwatch! I'll be updating this post as the action occurs in the incubator. It's so eggciting!
It's 12:36 pm and one of the white eggs is wiggling periodically. Every time Limey catches me staring into the incubator he rolls his eyes and tells me that I'm obsessive.
Friday 9:05am: Some more eggs are wiggling but nothing else is happening. They aren't actually due until tomorrow but I'm hoping somebody hatches while our visitor is here. In other news, where are my new baby bunnies? They were due on Wednesday and Donna started making a nest on Sunday. The nest is gone now and she's still pregnant?!
Saturday 6:46pm: I heard a chirp coming from the incubator and while I was watching a crack appeared on one of the eggs. It made me jump.
7:46am: Egg 1 is taking a break and now we have a white egg starting to pip!
8:08am: Another egg is pipped. Lots of wiggling eggs now and a few peeps. Yes I am obsessively watching the incubator.
2:33pm: 5 eggs are pipped now, no zipping yet.
6:39pm: 7 pips no zips. I haven't heard anything from this morning's chicks all day. Waiting is stressful. I hope they all make it.
7:50pm: Starting to see a little more action. Lots of eggs rocking and chicks chirping when I whistle at them.
Sunday 6:39am: A chick started to zip last night around 12:30. It was the one that pipped at 6am Saturday morning. By the time I got up at 5:40 to top up the fire, 3 chicks we playing soccer with the remaining eggs. They hatched from two brown eggs and one white. It looks like they are two blue Australorps and a mix. Of the remaining eggs only 3 haven't pipped yet; the two browns that I put in a day late and one white egg. They are so cute!
