Fresh Hatching

I have to warn you, this is a photo heavy post. Mr. Awesome complained that I used a bad picture in the last post, but I say “why did you send me a bad picture?” I hope this makes up for the bad one yesterday.

Cute bit of fluff.

Four eggs have hatched so far, one black chick, one chipmunk, and two buffs. Three eggs remain, of which only one has a pip (small hole). The pip is the first step in the hatching process. We should have another chick by the time I get home today.

Until next time….
