“1st EGG HAS HATCHED!”

The 1st egg hatched this afternoon (Saturday Mar. 21st) at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. We believe that the hatching occur ed between 12:00 and 12:30pm but the female's attentiveness made it difficult to get a clear view. A second egg has pipped so we'll expect to it hatch sometime soon. The entire hatching process can take up to 24 hours so we are unsure when the 2nd hatchling will make it's debut.
