The long cook in the oven...
Phillip can't wait, although he had no idea what he was waiting for.
By Monday morning the second chick pipped. Worried that these chicks might not make it we took it upon ourselves to help them out a little. We chipped away the shell around the air cell. Very shortly thereafter our first chick emerged. Since it was a success we did the same to the other one and happily got the same result.
The first chick "hatching" (how will Phillip ever eat eggs again?!).
The second one taking a much needed rest.
This was the second and last of twelve eggs to hatch. (9 infertile, 1 died before hatching)
HELP!!! Phillip is taking suggestions for the names of his chicks. Winner is entitled to a hug and kiss from Phillip (some restrictions may apply).
