So the other little yellow chick I am calling Chaquita, as in banana. So when this little one was being hatched today I was like oh another yellow one, and then I was like well just like Mork from Ork emerged from an egg, we got to witness this one, so Tada! Mork…now to be able to tell the difference as they grow.
Here you can see the little chick trying to hatch, the other ones were curious and would peck at her once in a while, and even sit on the egg.
Here they all are, and it didn't take long for Mork to fluff up. The two hatched today are really sleepy though, the three hatched yesterday are much more active. In fact Chaquita was pecking on Mork's feet, bad baby.
Here you can see Mork hatch, I think it's cool. I took it in a few videos as it took some time, and just put them together.
Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.
Super cute, thanks for sharing!!

That video is SOOOOO cool!!! TFS with us!
hey my friend, those babies are so cute. I had no idea what a long process it was for a chick to hatch. And it really is hard work. Truly is amazing how quick they can stand up and fluff up. thanks for sharing your babies…..

Alice is cheering him on! Cute! Do you get to keep all of the chicks?
OMG….this was so awesome. I have never had an opportunity to see something like this. Thank you so much for sharing!!!! How cute and little they are. It does give a whole new meaning now when eating eggs……

Thanks for sharing Mork's emergence from his (her?) egg! I grew up on a farm, so know how it's done, but not sure I ever actually got to see one getting out of the shell. Such hard work!
About how long did it actually take? Hard to tell when you've spliced the video.
Jacqui Lines says
I don't think you are supposed to help them with their arse shell.

So Alice took over and sat on the fertilized eggs? And wow, the hatching looks exhausting. Mork is breathing so hard!
