The 5 Maxi hatchlings on 6/20/05 - All hatched in incubator.

June 26, 2005


The 5 Maximilian babies, the one that is larger of the 5 in this brooder
was hatched on 6/14 and this is the one who was damaged as an egg
and I had repaired the shell to save him and he successfully developed
and hatched! (See photo below)  This is the second one of the season that has hatched
as the very first Maxi baby was hatched on June 1st and died on June 6th, due to "Slow Crop".


This egg is the chick shown below and the egg was repaired and put in incubator.
Which is the oldest of the 5 Maxi babies in the photos.


The egg on the right is the one that I speak of as being the1st Maxi chick hatched and the
egg on the left was completely infertile but at the time of the repair this was not known if fertile.
These were Bunky and Bubbles eggs and these eggs would have been taken from them just
near time of hatching as these parents will eat their hatchlings every single time, sad but true.


Bunky & Bubble's Chick - this egg was severely damaged in the nest and it would not have
developed in its early stages had it not been brought in for repair.  The repair consists
of tissue and clear nail polish which is a thin coating painted in to seal it. This is the oldest
Maxi chick that you see above and the photo directly below...
so it goes to show that egg repair can often be successful in its hatching!
