Stripey hatches four and soon there will be more

The chicks began hatching and so far there are four with three more starting to hatch. It looks like we will have seven new chicks in the morning. Who knows, the other two might hatch and then we would have nine. The bantam chickens eggs are a bit bigger than a ping pong ball which means that the new chicks are really small. It is amazing to watch the eggs hatch. Once they get started it takes about a half an hour to break out of the shell and then a half an hour to get dry and fluffy. It is so amazing. I can hardly wait to check on them in the morning.
