Subject:Baby nandays are here...

Thought I'd share some pics of my newest arrivals with you. The little Nanday pinkies. The first hatched 8/21/04 so late at night that I missed it, the second hatched 8/24/04 also late in the evening, but I was keeping watch this time. I didn't think the second egg would make it, because it had a hairline crack and was visibly infected/contaminated, but I gave it a little bit of antibiotic and sealed the crack. I'm amazed that this baby hatched! He's going to get antibiotics until the yolk is absorbed, as an extra precaution. Both are looking good so far, and waiting for sibling number three. The third one has pipped internally and should be out in a couple of days.

I pulled all 3 eggs this time. Our neighbors are building an addition onto their house, and nervous Jade wasn't coping well with all the construction noises. She was kicking the eggs around too much - hence the hairline crack in one. I was afraid she'd scramble them.
