Ray's Gramma just called and we talked chickens/chicks for half hour.

Gotta run to town and I don't wanna leave the babies!

I wentahead and pipped a hole in each end of the double. Both er breaking! There was almost no blood, but I left it at that and wrapped it in a wet washcloth and put it back to let the vessels dry out and give them time. I'll take pics of each part of the process, then I'll upload!

Get this!!!!!....................... One is yellow and one is black! Not really twins, lol. I'm guessing one is more australorp and one more booboo chicken!
Ahhhhh! How exciteing.
So exciting!! I really hope they live!

I wish we could have a rooster but our neighborhood is too loud. We're hoping to get a little farmette in the next year or so so hopefully we can get one then.

We just had a cpl more pip after the pics.

I'll take more pics as they zip. Prop in the am? I'm betting it will be closer to 24 hrs.
You can see where the big end of the egg was so large the air pocket was huge and exposed too much. Then I waited till this afternoon to do any more shell removal and only removed the membrain on the yellow chick end and found the yolk remnants.
I think the moist warm cloth around it is working well. I'm just leaving it alone. I think when they are ready, they can work their way out.

I need to see it as a gift.

The twins looked to have only developed to day 18, they were 21. I think it was lack or room and just needed more time. I just didn't want them to run out of air. I know now though.


We have 5 drying.

They look unusual with their long scruffy look. Like a cochinXaustralorp. I havn't seen feathers on the feet though.
