ok, the cream legbars came in today and i put them under the sweeter heater
for about an hour. The friend i have insisted that its not a good idea to introduce
them at night because there is no way you could intervene if something happens
in the middle of the night. So, i rubbed one of the eggs mom has been sitting on
for 26 days and put a single chick and the egg back under mom... no aggressive
reaction...not yet.. so i sit within arms reach at the house door and just watch for the next hour.
then i go get the other 3 chicks and 1 by 1 rub the egg on them and put them under mom.
things are starting to get hairy. babies are picking at moms waddles and eyes. just
watching again and prepared to intervene if need be.
another hour goes by.. so far no attacks or pecks by mom but its not going
smooth as silk. maybe its just me cause I'm nervous and scared.
here are a couple of pix. i will keep this thread updated as i go if you like.
its been 2.5 hours so far and no one is dead or injured yet. thats a good thing
OH, and THANK GOD it didn't happen before i was done.
Both of moms eggs exploded as i sit them in the box the chicks came
in right after i put the last chick under mom.......The smell ? Un-describable and all over me..
