MP2 and Sunny

On day 18, of the 21 day hatch, our last little banty egg pipped a hole in his egg.

When I went to bed last night, the egg had a decent size hole in the bottom.  Usually when you see a pip, you have 12 hours until the chicken hatches.  This poor little guy took 36 hours to break free of his shell.

I set my alarm to go off every two hours to check on the egg.  When I woke up at 6 in the morning, he had hatched!  Since he looks exactly like Mr. Pigeon and hatched early, we decided to name him MP2.

The giant, brown chicken egg pipped around 10 pm last night, so I had my eye on it too.

Today the hole got bigger and bigger, so we waited and waited.  Taylor and Rylynn came over to play today and they got to experience the hatch with us. 

If you have never seen a chicken hatch, you HAVE to watch this!  It's amazing!  We named cute little yellow chicken Sunny.  It may have something to do with Austin's favorite drink, Sunny D. 

3 down, 3 more to go!
