Number 2 Chick

If anything the arrival of the second chick today was more exciting than the first because unusually it happened in daylight hours when its progress could be seen. The second egg showed signs of a hole this morning which enlarged gradually. Then at five past three in the afternoon the top broke off and a wet skinny little mite squirmed its way out of the lower shell. It looked so small compared to its sibling despite only being a day younger. However, wobbly neck and all it managed to take its first feed of fish around 5 o’clock.
