Today I was a little shocked to come onto the Ostrich Egg cam live and to see that there was no more little Gunga! Luckily after about a minute of investigation I could stop panicking because little Gunga had not passed away suddenly. Which was so relieving to me, because Gunga was so fiesty!
What had happened was Daddy Dash and kind Rancher Joel decided to break the other egg shells and were sad to discover that the other eggs had not developed properly. So they were not going to grow any further. So what they have decided to do was to take Gunga out and let him/her run free with a kind Rancher Joel other baby Ostriches. Baby ostriches thrive much better when they have other ostriches to run around with.
Of course this all happened while I was asleep.
SO at the moment it’s just some last chatting before the chat comes off and probably waiting a whole another year for the next lot =D
So the first egg has been taken out and is currently in the hatchery, Daddy Dash thinks it’s sleeping though…One down…Three to go!
This weekend you should all be watching this web Ustream TV live feed…THIS WEEKEND!
Ostrich Egg – Cam Live!
If you are long time reader of mine you will know a couple of years ago I fell in love with little Pip. The baby Ostrich that was hatched and raised by the Dash family for a little before she tragically passed away. Baby birds, or birds in general are extremely sensitive and so the littlest thing can easily kill them.
Please join me on the 25th of this month and we can witness this awesome moment together, I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Please read my previous posts about the other viewings.
Today is a most joyous day indeed! The baby ostriches that I have been obsessed with since last year are starting to “hatch”. I have been watching for the last few hours and out of the 5, there are only two that have been showing any growth in the egg. (There was a third that was growing slower than the others, but have not heard what has happened to it since beginning of last week, when it was taken out of the incubator).
It is extremely fascinating! Ostriches do not start growing as soon as the egg is laid, the foetuses start growing once they start to “heat up” (or usually when an adult Ostrich starts to nest on top of the eggs, or in this case are put into a incubator). Once again the Dash Family is going to be presenting a live feed to the whole world of the hatching process and, hopefully, successfully raising them.
My partner made a joke about how he has this image of me being “obsessively watching the video”…Of course I’m not =P lol…It can take up to 24 hours for a baby Ostrich to hatch. Ostrich eggs are the toughest eggs on the planet, which is why it takes so long for them to hatch.
Currently one of the two Ostriches that are fully developed has finally “Pipped” and has broken through a little, you can view it’s head. Time (California time – Location of Ostriches): 7:04am…(Australia Time): 12:00am…Which is why I am now heading to bed.
Once again below is the link to the live feed:
