This peep has just begun it's adventure. From here on out, things get pretty busy. The peep will get dried, checked out, and tossed in the brooder. There it'll learn to eat, drink, and make a mess with all the other peeps, all in a couple days, until it ends up in it's new home.
From pipping to break-out should take less than 24 hours. After this, problems start to arise. This peep looks nasty, but it will be up and running in no time. They are on their feet in a couple hours, and look and act like totally different critters inside the next 24 hours. The peep who hatched is a Production Red. All the pics are of different eggs, except the last 2.
