My dateless eggs had a chirp yesterday. Last night a pip, this morning 6 pips.............I took photos of the EEs, here's why:
A 12 year old girl talked her dad into buying her some chicks. She's going thru divorce junk parent exchange every week, he just lost his job of 25 years :( She has two new little sisters 1 year old and newborn from mom, I'm sure she's thrilled *sarcastic* ......just this beautiful kid that wants to be a vet and asked more questions for her age than EVER!!! I saved the eggs for her to gather and she just lit up!
She picked out her two, a WS and I THINK an EE. Will pick them up next week after returning to dads. My thoughts went to: record the EEs that are hatching now and see if she would rather have them? And she gets to see them from hatch to baby! I need to learn how to take short clips of the progress and will email them to her dad for approval before asking her if she would rather have the newbies:) Also need to be sure it's not a roo in there as cities are not allowed roos. Now to just get past any issues ......
I saw someone else has silkies on here? For some reason my silkie's eggs are a challenge. i have one still viable and she stopped laying. I'm going to create her a quiet nest only she can get into.......seeing some aggression from the other hens that was not there before? Still waiting on the other silkie to lay. It took about 7 months for Peeky to lay and still no Silkie babies......we'll see if her egg pips, the other egg didn't look quite right.....no blood rings, it was alive but the egg was not "full" as the others were.
Off to pick hubs brain on recording this hatch
