Hot Pants! In the 30's? She's missing her pearl necklace.
LOL...Good, cause I'm really good at them! Really I am!
Firedragon, I just got here, and we haven't met, but I'm very sorry about your chick!
I think it flew off!!! Hi Cynth!! xtra squooshes!!
and you think I aint?
Trust me I know...... we were in the middle of the Easter HAL Funny Posting mini contest night I was running and all of a sudden I lost hughesnet with all these BYC members online waiting for my posts!! OMG @Cynthia12 u see how far in advance we were posting and how long after?
I so remember this night, felt sooo sorry for you you! Everyone kept posting though, having fun posting random photos, and kept mentioning you and how worried they were..that you were worried about us.
Have to say, I love love this avy. Include an old doggy anytime, catches my attention. Oh, and the half of that man that I can see, looks nice too.
You know it was a few days later I upgraded my phone service because of that
Poor Batman... or Batwoman. So sorry to hear that. Here's a link that may explain why this happened... http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-spot-problems-of-newly-hatched-chicks.html
Well he is an Araucana which has that genetic thing where if it got the 2 double tufted gene that it would DIS before hatch, makes me wonder if he was one of those. I also wonder if the power outage getting the incubator down to 65-70 and then when we got the generator, raising it back up too quick might have done something? If that is the case, i worry for my marans now too because the 3 Thermometers have all been calibrated and read ~2 degrees of correct. Argh, sad baby
Thank you, Veny! It's basically a rabbit hutch with a solid floor. I over-built it, which is the reason for the removable partition. I can keep a few chicks in it, or I can keep a lot. Just planning ahead.
Glad pasty butt is doing good! Still bummed about the Seramas, but that's the way it goes sometimes. You'll just have to try again!!!
I use a rabbit hutch that we bought, My DH fixed it up better than it came, and it came brand new. He put roof shingles on it, we finally closed off the little nest area that stuck out from it. Now, we have a huge tarp ready if I decide to put any chicks out there. I have a large grow out coop/pen, thinking I may be using that for chicks if I get a good hatch in the next few days.
