My first chick hatched this afternoon. i'm very happy, if it survives. The next three will hatch before 1600 tomorrow, if my reckonings right. Time to wet the baby's head!

The mum is the leftmost. I can't get near, as the other two dismember me, and as you can see, mum reverses so violently, I'm worried she might hurst the chicks, so I'm just leaving nature take its course for now.
