More Chicks

Hatching is happening! Around 6:15 pm I realized there was peeping coming from the hatcher and I saw 2 freshly hatched chicks still damp. They look like pure bred barred rocks, black down, and the one I could easily see had a big yellow spot on its head. One more egg has pipped, have to see what comes out of that, hopefully by tomorrow morning.

Can't find the keet that jumped out of the brooder and ran away. He's long gone and more than likely will not survive the night. Too bad, now I'm down to 3 and they could try to run any time. I've got the garage doors closed now so if they do get out it will be inside.
