Chick Update

There are 8 black and yellow fluffy chicks in the hatcher with the meaties and 2 more in the hatcher. Hal and I had to help one of them out of it shell and pick more pieces off him two more times before he could stand up. Poor thing was really stuck. It looks like that will be all for these 24 eggs. Ten out of 24, about a 41% hatch rate. That's better than I feared we would get. Hopefully these two will be ready to add to the brooder tomorrow.
