Meet Class of 2010: Chick 1006
The egg was pipping and the hatch was expected May 12. But on May 11, chick #1006 surprised everyone and arrived at lunch time. You can't see her, but this is Barb Clauss. She is gently moving the chick, still wet from hatching, to the incubator to get warm and dry. Why do you think she wears this costume that covers her up?
(Hear answer by Dan, who also tends the chicks at Paatuxent WRC with Barb.)
