      Aw, sweet baby. I captured one that was still rather damp the last time I was there.

      I grew up in the suburbs and have many fond memories of the M of S&I (but not of the coal mine; the coal mine scared me).

      What a perfect photo for the 52½ of 2009 group. She (?) looks rather lonely though, I hope the others hatched out soon after!

      Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I was a little nervous joining this group.

      *Sweetpea* There were three or four other newly hatched chicks floundering around and some of the other eggs were moving around the incubator and the chicks were breaking out. So this one will have much company shortly.

      photos by Juliet I don't get down to the museum quite often enough to watch this chick grow up. But they have another incubator with slightly older chicks in it next to the one where they hatch. Here is what this little guy will look like in a few days:
