I just wanted to share a quick picture of the first two peachicks to hatch out from our very own flock of peafowl. Aren’t they adorable? We’ve had a waiting list for them since before the eggs were even set, and these guys’ new owners have been super excited about them.
I have just one more picture to share:
This is a picture of a candled peafowl egg that is internally pipped (the lighter portion of the egg is the air cell). When I first started incubating eggs, I read about internal pipping and how you could see the shadow of the chick moving in the air cell. Even after studying tons of pictures, I still couldn’t imagine exactly what it would look like in person. Now I know that it’s so much more exciting to witness than any picture could portray. Definitely one of my favorite parts of hatching eggs.
