Hatching update: the good and the bad

Two chicks or eyases have hatched, which is good news.  There is also bad news.  One eyas apparently hatched  (from what I have been told) but did not survive.  There are still two eggs.  We should know their fate within the next 24-48 hours.  Stay tuned and to go to the LIVE! streaming video click HERE.
