Abundance: incubation day 22

At this point there are 7 hatched birds and 3 eggs that have pips started. About half have feathered legs, something I hadn’t considered at all. All have 4 toes (some breeds have 5).

The dry ones have been moved to the brooder:

There are two fresh/wet chicks still in the incubator:

All appear to be healthy and thriving so far.

I am not optimistic that the three pips will hatch. One shows a bit of progress since this morning but not much.
