Good morning all!! To everyone dealing with storms right now, be safe! I hope things don't get any worse! We are currently at 54, with a high of 68 expected. For all the California haters....that's why I live here. I hate the politics, the taxes, the regulations and a lot of the people.....but I love the weather!!
@Sallysunshine Congratulations on all the new babies - my cats especially loved the noisy brooder video - so did I - so cute!!!!
@LokelYokel - that is a lot of water! Can chickens swim? I hope that you are able to stay warm and dry!
- I'm so sorry about the temp spike - I hope your eggs are ok!
To everyone that posted chicken pictures - THANK YOU!! They are so beautiful! Congratulations on all the new additions!
We survived the compliance officer visit - he never even mentioned the chickens. We had them all out of view, but you could faintly hear them. The case is closed, so we aren't expecting any follow up visits.
So far, my 12 eggs in the 'bator are at day 21, and no pips and no hatching. I did use older eggs in this batch - so it could be that, or I did something horrible to the eggs between my last hatch and this one. My temps in the still air lock down 'bator are steady at 100.5 - 101.5 depending on which thermometer, so maybe I'm just running them at too low a temp. I'll give them another day or two, but I'm doubtful.
