||Can anyone confirm this?

||I saw the head on #3. There looks to be something yellow near #4 but I wouldn't call it a foot. More like junk,

||Maybe a dandelion?

||I guess I was seeing things! I could have sworn I saw a foot moving. Maybe it was just the wind blowing on a piece of nesting material.

||It's out! Welcome, little one!

||I also thought I saw something moving near the 4th egg earlier today. quess not. Took lunch and missed lunchtime at the nest glad to have so many good observations to read.

||Egg 4 is only 33 days old so any hatching would be a sort of world record.
So this seems a bit unlikely.

||Yes I agree # 4 is a bit young yet for hatching but remember the last egg is packed with extra nutrients to sort of compensate for the late deliveryy, so it could hatch in two days time.Certainly it won't hang in there till it is 38 days old...I would imagine those eggs that mature till 38 days have the best chance of surviving.I think # 2 hatched when it was only 36 days old...correct me if I am wrong.
