We got 11/11 eggs converted into live, cheeping, pecking chicks.
After sober discussion, Daniel and I have decided that No 1 will stay here at the Manor. No 1 is after all the first creature born here, or at least the first domestic one, and we’ll keep one other for a buddy for him, since it is not good for chicks to grow up alone. We’re kind of hoping No 1 is actually a hen, but even if he turns out to be a roo, we’ll figure out how to keep him — possibly by building a pen for Mel and giving him some silkie hens.
There’s a pile of pics in my Hatching Eggs set on Flickr. But let me give you just one pic of No 1, who looks a bit pompous and silly, in the way of small baby chickens:
 DANIEL: WE COULD CYBERNETICALLY ENHANCE HIM AND KEEP HIM FOREVER! HE’S SO CUTE AND FLUFFY!
ME: HOW ABOUT WE SKIP THE CYBERNETIC ENHANCEMENT PART?
