The Pipping Continues

It is confirmed.  The incubator does not have to be a steady 99.5 (like all the instructions say) to successfully hatch eggs.  I would venture to guess that my incubator only hit 99.5 when it was on it's way down from 100+ degrees or on it's way up from 95 degrees.  Apparently, that's close enough.

The second egg started to pip late afternoon yesterday and the chick actually hatched before the first pipper. 

Sorry the pics are blurry.  It was kind of hard taking pictures through the plexiglass window.

A face only a mother could love.

It finally just kind of fell out.  Exhausted.

Definitely not cute.

Puffy one was born last night and spent the night in a box on top of the garage refrigerator.  The wet one is the one that started to pip yesterday afternoon and didn't completely hatch until around 7:00 this morning.  We have another one pipping in the incubator.
