The lonely chick.
But Lucky’s such a good boy. An angel!
He keeps busy. He reads the comics.
He eats his food.
See his regal profile? What a chicken he will be!
Well, maybe we’ll have to do something about that hair…..
The other eggs defy me.
Thinking back to what I’ve read, if you keep the incubator slightly lower than the optimum 102 degrees, chicks do take a day or two longer to hatch, according to the books. For fear of accidentally overheating again, I’ve kept my incubator around 100. Lucky hatched at Day 23. (And so far, from the first batch, he is the only one–truly, the miracle baby.) Today is Day 22 for the second batch.
I think I hear some little crackly pecking from inside the eggs……
