First pip!

Submitted by jimwcoleman

So things are getting exciting here. We got the first pip on one of our incubated chicken eggs this morning! Today is day 20. The chick pips out a little chunk of shell so it can breathe (on side of egg near top of picture). From there, the chick will rest for up to 24 hours before resuming her exit plan from the egg. This is always suck a fun, magical time!
