The first egg is due to hatch -- in fact I think it was due yesterday --- Just maybe we'll have a little one before the day is done :dunno:
There has been reports of a hole in one of the eggs.

We have a hatching taking place. Joe just now zoomed in the cam.
The egg with the hole is a very odd color. I'm not sure if I've noticed other eggs that color before :dunno:

The hole isn't looking any bigger .
I don't know how long a hummingbird egg takes to hatch but it's been almost 24 hours and this one doesn't seem to be making much progress. :dunno:

I think this baby was in real trouble after 12 hours from the first pip. Small eggs normally hatch more quickly than larger eggs. The range usually given is 12-36 hours as the longest times from pip to hatch. When he ran out of energy, he would stop moving, scratching and vocalizing. Many reasons for "dead in shell" on google. You could kind of tell from Phoebe's behavior when he was quiet for too long and he was gone. To me she looked like she went from expectant to hyper-excited (worried) to resigned.

I checked at uStream and apparently Phoebe has been gone from the nest for approx. 1 1/2 hours now.
