I thought their odds of making it weren't very good... overall it wasn't a great hatch to begin with, many of the eggs turned out to be infertile so we were left with only 4. Then, the past few weeks weren't exactly great eletricity-wise - many power shutdowns around here, yesterday one that lasted almost all day. Our emergency unit went out of order, too. Yesterday was to be their due day, and I was sure the fluctuating temperature and humidity had done them in, but they made it today, just a little late. We are all so excited, us and the girls (now 4 and 2.5 years). Two more eggs are due to hatch tomorrow, and one has pipped already.
So far it appears we have one male and one female chick, but I might err. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks, if all goes well, we'll know for sure.
Here is a photo of their Mom. She's an Israeli (Baladi) chicken, so technically not a recognized breed, but I thought her feathering is one of the prettiest I've ever seen on a chicken, if I may say so myself, so I was very eager to get chicks from her. She was hatched in our incubator too, last June.
And Dad. They are siblings, hatched in the same brood, so I have high hopes for the lovely feather pattern to be repeated.
