Pippin – the rescued chick

As you know I helped a chick come out of its egg. What I did not known back than was that the little one was not a Silkie. It’s egg got through the others eggs by mistake. It is a Bantam (the miniature-type of chicks).

That is why it pipped the egg on day 19, because Bantams chicks come out earlier than the other chicks. But because I did not know it was not a Silkie egg I kept turning all the eggs until day 18, so the pour little thing did not have enough time to position itself in the egg for hatching. That is way he could not brake the egg, it pipped on the wrong place.

I’m glad I could save it. It’s a happy ending story 🙂
