1st Hatch!

The first egg hatched this morning pretty much on schedule!
It is very chilly, windy and damp in Columbus this morning and fans have been very concerned the chick was uncovered and not moving very much.  Yes, elements like these can present serious conditions for survival but keep in mind after a chick hatches it is very tired and it is normal for it to not move much.  Durand has the unhatched eggs and chick covered up now which is the best thing.  Durand has a lot of experience with many successful hatches over the years so we'll all hope for the best and try not to jump to conclusions.
