1st Chick

The first chick revealed this morning, Wednesday, May 19th:All looks well. The chicks don't need to eat for at least a day or two after hatching, as they are still being nourished by the yolk sac.

Late last evening, watchers reported hearing the chick vocalizing from inside the egg and a video was posted to YouTube. One fan even reported "watching" a dark screen in the middle of the night but was still able to hear the chick(s). I'm glad we were able to get the nestbox audio working in time! Hopefully, more hatching to come!
