We now have 4 baby birds. We didn't know if the 4th egg was going to hatch. There had been a problem with it. It had somehow got knocked out of the nest, down into the flower basket.
After a few days my dh put it back. So, we didn't know if it would hatch or not. We didn't know what to do with that egg....if maybe the mother had knocked it out, knowing it was a bad egg?
Or maybe one of the dogs hit the pole holding the basket as they ran by? We thought we shouldn't mess with it, but then one day dh decided to just pick it up & put it back.
Some time yesterday, it hatched! :)
