    #hatching egg/chick! At the top of the ridge. Looks like chick's head coming out of egg. Right?

    Took a really close look - with hope and excitement, but I think it is a very pale chick curled around (looking like the egg shell). Try

    Think you are right - but very freshly born. What happens to all the egg shells - never see them?

    That's a good point. A lot of birds eat the shell because of its valuable calcium content. I wonder if pengs do the same? See science board
