Yesterday I checked on the egg in the incubator. It was pipping (that's what it's called when a chick breaks a small area through the shell near it's beak). I made a quick trip to the post office (less than 10 minutes), and shortly after, Alan came home. He went to check on the egg, and she'd hatched! So I missed the whole thing! I had planned to create a hatching video... I guess we'll make plans for that next time!
I thought this chick might be a Peanut/Zippidydoodah baby, but turns out it's a Peanut/Edward Scissorbeak baby! So, she's a Mille Fleur (Peanut) and Ameraucana (Edward Scissorbeak) cross.
Shame on you, Peanut!! What will the neighbors think!?
But still, cute as can be!! Here's a video for you of the chick still in the incubator drying off. This video was taken last night. After she dried off, I moved her in with the other chick. Finally, a friend!
