Some time ago, I wrote about the foundling pea-eggs I have in my incubator… Well, they have stopped being just eggs and are magically transforming themselves into peachicks!!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Walter the Peachick!! Don’t look at me like that – I didn’t name him. Sid, my friend’s son who found the eggs, was given the honour of naming the chick. So, Walter. If Walter turns out to be a girl, I suppose we have to think again.
Walter is at this moment peeping non-stop in the brooder in our bathroom, because he is all alone. His sibling wasn’t as quick as he was and is still busy hatching. I hope all will be well and they will soon be together!
I am quite amazed. I read everywhere about how difficult it is to hatch peachicks artificially, so I was kind of expecting them not to hatch. But here they are! And how cute and pretty!! ❤
