A new chick

After dinner tonight and before dishes, Cole and I were talking to our daughter about the importance of telling the truth. (Unfortunately a familiar talk we've had many times before!)  Suddenly we started hearing "Cheep, Peep" from the laundry room. Sure enough, an Ameraucana chick had just hatched out of its shell. The incubator is chock full of eggs so there wasn't a whole lot of space for this little one to move around and detach itself from its shell. Soon enough it was free and resting. Being born into the world is hard on a little chick and they generally take a teeny nap to recover.

She's resting on and amongst her friends, just waiting for them to join her. Several of them have the start of cracks so hopefully this little one will have some chick friends come morning. And by that time, I just know she'll want to get out of there and come to the Big Dining Room to play.
