Sunny  24℃—32

 

  On May 17th, Helen’s classmate gave me a hatch machine and ten fertile eggs. I put the ten eggs into the hatch machine and set up the temperature of the machine. What I should have done was wait then after 21 days , some chicks would hatch out of the shells. I told Helen why only fertile eggs could hatch into chicks. Most eggs can only be eaten ,  not be hatched .

Later in the evening of  May 21st , Helen and I candled the eggs. We turn off all the lights, opened the cover of the hatch machine, put the flashlight on the eggs. Surprise! We saw embryos and small blood vessels in the eggs. Helen could not help herself and screamed ‘wonderful’, let’s witness the miracle of life.

Again late in the evening on May 24th , Helen and I candled the eggs again. This time we could find embryos so easy because they were bigger and more black. I held the eggs on one hand and candled on another hand, Helen took pictures of them on my cellphone and showed the pictures on my wechat zone to make all of my wechat friends see them. Suddenly Helen screamed “mum, look, something is moving into the eggs ”. yeah, under the flashlight , embryos were moving so fast. I was not sure if they moved always or just because of the hard light. Helen was interested in it and asked me many questions , such as ‘was I moving into your body when you were pregnant’ ‘could the hen feel they moved into the embryo’

There were surprises everyday even if we candled every night.On

May 25th, we could see eyes into the eggs , embryo still moved but not as fast as they did yesterday. blood vessels grew up . Rotating the eggs slowly we could see the crooked spine inside the eggs. The eggs were not transparent so I could not take clear photographs. Helen wrote  numbers  on the eggs so we could distinguish each egg through the numbers.

  On May 29th, we could see almost nothing inside the eggs but black shadows because chicks were growing up and up. We only imagined what happened inside because there were bigger and bigger black shadows every day.

On June 1st, the chicks would be out in 6 days I set up the

temperature lower maintain it as recommend in the operation manual. When I candled the eggs , I could find along the wall covered with blood vessels or increasing feather. Helen and I were excited waiting for their birth.

On June 2nd, Helen found there were something moving in the

eggs when we candled that night we thought maybe there were heads or wings or legs , maybe chicks stretched out inside lol. Do not worry we would see the chicks soon

On June 6th, today I saw a hole on the egg , I thought the chick

would be out soon so I got up for the forth coming birth tonight but nothing happened. The eggs moved because of new lives inside, it made me so excited.

  On 7th at noon, I went home to see if we had some chicks as I thought they would be out of the shells today. There was the sound of a chick when I opened the door. One chick was out, it was small and yellow. There was another chick would due to come out because the egg moved and moved and there was a long fissure on the shell. I could see a chick inside trying to make the fissure bigger and biggerI thought a new chick would come to the world soon so I sat near the hatch machine watching the egg. The egg was open a little, the chick inside used his head and legs again and again and tried to be out of the shell. I knew it must do it by itself I could not help him, the fissure was wider and wider. It tried and then had a rest and then tried again. Finally it was fully out of the shell. It was so small ,wet ,thin and weak laying in the hatch machine and could not stand up. I was excited and surprised to watch the birth. I made some videos in my wechat to share it with my wechat friends. Many blood was left in the shell, it meant how hard it was to be born. Every life is a miracle. One hour later I must leave for my office, the fluff on the chick was dry and made it look fat and strong. It could stand and two chicks pecked each other , it was so fun. Before Helen was home after school this day, the third chicks was hatched . she checked my wechat on her dad’s cellphone and watched all the video of the chicks I filmed this noon. It was time for bed but Helen and I thought there was the fourth birth soon, so we did not go to bed, just sat near the hatch machine waiting for the new baby. Finally Helen and I watched the birth of the fourth chick this night at 2240 . it was her first to watch it with her own eyes not on TV, she was too excited to sleep well. What a magic day today for her!

Other 3 chicks were out on 8th , 7 new baby stayed into the hatch machine together, the older four chicks flight the younger 3 chicks so I moved the 4 older ones out from hatch machine into a big carton warmed through a 40 watt incandescent bulb, I fed them cooked egg yolk and soaked millet. Usually the new born chick can eat and drink first after 48 hours of his birth. I put paper in the carton and take away uppermost paper after the chicks excrete to keep them clean.

On June 9th early morning after I woke up, I found a small hole on the 8th egg I knew the 8th chicks would be born today. This was Dragon Boat Festival , I need not work and have much time to observe and take care of chicks. Usually chicks will be out of their shells after 21 days hatch but this was the 24th day so I thought if the remaining 2 chicks could not be born this day then they would never be out. The sound inside the 8th egg was weaker and weaker. Helen and I decided to help it out after lunch. I made the hole bigger and bigger carefully I saw its beak and heard its bird call inside. I opened the egg and saw it was surrounded by egg membrane and it was why it could not come out of the shell. I peeled away the membrane gently. The chick was so weak and thin, less fluff, lower bird call , full of blood on its body. Helen and I realized without our help it would die soon in the shell and we did not how long it would be alive. Helen moved others chicks out of hatch machine into the carton and let the last one into the machine alone. We wished we could saved it. After one hour later it could not stand only laid down alone. Helen touch its fluff softly and did not know how to help it better. After 6 hours of its birth , it still could not stand but it called higher and higher and tried to move by his head and chest. It was too weak so Helen and I decided to let it alone into the hatch machine and made others sleep into the carton this evening. They lowered their heads , got down their bodies and closed eyes, their sleeping posture was so cute that Helen and I sat beside the carton quietly and watched them sleeping.  

Helen and I watched the chicks as soon as we woke up next day. The 8th still could not stand but it was active moved by its chest, tried to stand up again and again in the corner even if it failed every time, but it never gave up. The other 7 were worse , they dropped their head and looked drowsy, the worst one only laid down on the floor even did not eat when Helen fed them. We worried and went online to find information. It was said they were cold , temperature in the carton was too low for them. Helen and I discussed and we all agreed that we could not make 7 chicks died only because of the one weak chick. So we put all chicks into hatch machine to make them warm inside. The 8th chicks tried to flight other intruders but finally they all were quiet and slept inside crowed. They ate less this noon when I fed and cleaned the hatch machine, Helen asked me if they would die, actually I did not know also but I would try to keep them warm and help them. Helen and I observed the 8 chicks frequently today. Helen played some music to make them feel better and wished the music would give them power to be alive. Fortunately the looked better and better, About 17pm the last chick could stand alone even if it could not stand a long time. So lively into the hatch machine. 8 chicks twittered together. Helen said I was a great mom because I saved the chicks.

After dinner Helen and I sat together and talked about the chicks , Helen told me her feelings about hatch :1st, every one only has one life , we should cherish our life. 2nd, the birth is the result of hard work, we should cheer for every life. 3rd, never give up , we both saved an chick could not born by his own , we did not give up because of the inherent defects and the chick tried to be alive by itself too. 4th, growing up is more than ten thousand times harder than just making his birth. So if you do not have commitment , then do not try to create a life. 5th, in order to save the defective 8th chick, Helen and I let the other 7 chicks in carton all day and all night for the first time, and 7 chicks had colds and got weaker than we thought because of cold, it looks we should look before leaping and then make our decisions, do not make our mind only for a temporary impulse or compassion. 6th, my husband hates to allow furry animals to grow up at home, but this time what I took home were not chicks , they were eggs. Now my husband agreed that Helen could keep the chicks for some days because he began to like cute chicks too. Methods are more than difficult. There is breakthrough for everything that looks impossible , the only problem is if you can find the breakthrough

In order to observe the chicks much better I gave them specific gestures every time. For example I squatted down beside the carton where the chicks lived without a word, when I fed them millet I held my hand high over the chick’s heads ,keeping it in the air some seconds and then opened my palm and let millet fall into the carton, when I fed them leaves, I held leaves in hand and took a scissor in the other hand, keeping my hands in the air too and then cut the leaves with scissor, when I had to pick them up and moved into another place, I opened my palm in the air some seconds and then tried to catch them. The first chick was born last Tuesday, it means only a week later after their birth, the 8 chick had already understood my gestures completely. They walked under my hand, looked up, staring at my hand before I fed them, they walked leisurely when I just watched them, they tried to flee before I wanted to catch them even if I just opened my palm in the air. I did not know how their Intellingence Quotient was, but at least they had sharp observation on surrounding environment. And now I remembered the famous test named  Pavlovian Conditioning . The youngest chick has got so strong now which Helen and I called it Wilbur from < Charlotte’s Web> written by E.B.White , it became a warrior in the 8 chicks and the most fierce chick of all. What a surprise!
