Overnight deliveries

We had more chicks hatch last night... you can see the empty shells in the incubator.  Some pics, especially for you Christian ;)

They were mostly dry, so we whipped the lid of to take out the broken shells, to give more room to the others. I took the opportunity to take a quick snap:

More have hatched since then, we have 12 chicks now, and we're hoping the rest should be out shortly.

In the other incubator (which we think is running colder than the temperature guage suggests) we now have several pipped eggs, but no chicks yet.

Actually, that's not a bad thing.  Hopefully we will be able to get the first lot into the lunar-module shaped brooder today,  and then out of the brooder into the big brooder in the shed tomorrow, just in time for those in the second incy to want the lunar -module.

I'll post more pics later.
