Good Morning!! Half my quotes disappeared this time....very weird.
I love the soccer ball, although I never did see it as that, I saw a fluffy chicken!!!!
I take mine out back and wash it with a high pressure nozzle. I put a tarp down, two heavy buckets on either side, so that it stays in place. It gets most of the gunk off. What's left, I scrub it. So far, I only have one discoloration stain that I can't get rid of. I'll have to try peroxide.
For those that use peroxide - do you dilute it? Or use the same strength that we use on our cuts?
Congratulations!! Someone told me that if my black silkie that mated with my white hens, and I got a black chick from them, that roo would carry the white gene. If that roo mates with my white hens (possibly it's mother), there is a chance it will be white. So your black roo must have had a white ancestor.
Hey guys if I put my 2 seperate orders of shipped eggs together ( they are a day apart) together in my new incubator how would I do lockdown?
Edit- guess I should add I've already got them in 2 seperate incubators. They are cheap ones that keep have drastic temp highs and lows. I just bought a new incubator to move them to before they get fried. Just not sure how to do lockdown if the eggs are a day apart.. hope that helps a bit.
I do staggered hatches all the time. Mine are usually at least 3 or more days apart. At 3 days or less, I have locked them all down at the same time. I just have to be really careful with the humidity when I take out the dry babies from the earlier hatch.
I try to keep at least 5 days between, that gives me a day or two to clean the incubator and set it up again. Congrats on the new Brinsea. I have 2 of them. One the temps are SPOT ON, the other is off by 1 degree. So make sure you calibrate it!! Good luck!!!
@MotorcycleChick - I'm so sorry about your knee!! I have landed on my knee cap before and that is WAY MORE painful that just hitting your leg. I hope it starts to feel better soon!!!
@daxigait - Again, congrats on the piggy sale! I'm so glad that it wasn't as bad as you expected!!!
I have been taking my daughter to equestrian therapy since she was 3. Horses are AMAZING creatures, and I'm sure they are why she is walking as well as she is.
@Sally Sunshine - Hi!! I'm glad that you seem to be feeling better!! How are the puppies doing?
Well, last night started day 19, and I needed to lock down my latest batch. I was tired, and stayed at a friends house, so my father was kind enough to move the eggs into the lock down bator I had set up the other day. When I candled on day 17, I marked the low points, where I thought they would pip, so he just had to lay them down, with the marks facing up! Only problem is, there were 6 seramas that were only on day 14, in the same bator. He didn't want to move them. I told him where those were situated, but he moved eggs based on the markings on the eggs. He left 8 eggs behind. So, I might have 2 eggs hatch in the turner. It's happened before.....
Happy Hatching everyone!
