Our first chicks have arrived...we are so EGG-cited!
We are so EGG-cited that we have 4 chicks hatched so far!
We arrived this morning to find 1 chick had hatched and then by lunchtime we had 4! Once one chick emerges, they encourage the others to hatch by chipping away at the eggs with their beaks and by chirping.
The chicks have to stay in the incubator to keep them warm for 24 hours and to fluff themselves up as when they first hatch they are very wet.
