The chicks hatched!!!

We counted 5 chicks in the can this morning. . . mama and papa were not around.  While we were looking one of the chicks jumped down onto a piece of "bubble wrap" we had put down for a softer landing for them.  We just checked the "nest" and all of the chicks that had hatched were gone.  There were 3 unhatched eggs still in the nest.. I think I spotted probably the papa near a century plant in the front yard.  So... out of 10 eggs there were probably 5 viable chicks.  Sure was glad that I got the pic of them..  What a miracle!!!
