Early, and Late

This one is Early.

Early, 12 hours old

And this one is Late.

Space-age Chicken

Early hatched after 21 days in the incubator. Like he should. Late was very late – almost 2 days later (I was about to switch the incubator off.)

Hatched in January, they are living indoors, cheeping for attention, jumping out of their carefully constructed cardboard home and endangering their lives by fluttering in front of the dogs. I will keep them inside another week at least, until this Siberian cold has passed and they have some insulating feathers.

Cheep cheep!
