2nd Egg Hatched; 3rd Pipped

Around 7 p.m. the 2nd egg hatched!  Durand was quite cooperative facing the camera and allowing a great view!  Besides watching the chick hatch, early in this video and in the still image below, if you look closely it appears as though a 3rd egg (on the far left) is pipped!  There may very well be a 3rd chick hatched by Wednesday morning!
Here's a photo from later in the evening after the chicks were fed for the first time.  They actually don't need to be fed for some time as they are still being nourished by the yolk sac.
