:fl  I'm hoping you do see lots of wiggles, or even just small wiggles in all the eggs.  Big wiggles come later!  I know what you mean by our eyes playing tricks!

Morning everyone! Thought I would share how the coop renovations are going. The brooder is done, just needs doors and screen.

Well critisism can feel 'mean', but that doesn't mean it is rude or mean. Truth is important even if it is not always comfortable.

True.

:frow Hi Kathy....  long time.

 

this thread goes so fast I cant keep up.    but one thing i have learned over the years is to try to type walk away go back and re read after I cool off.  works most times.    Particularly with people you realize dont give a Bleep about your answer or whos mind you arent going to change.

 

One thing I do do is try to hit them with the positive.  then go in for the "education".....

Looking good.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Oh, here's something I can share! My broodies have been busy ladies! Two down, two to go, unless someone else decides to sit, which they probably will. I keep a stash of eggs just for my broodies this time of the year, if I don't stock pile them, they all start sitting and I run out of eggs for them :th

frow.gif Hope everyone is well today! Just got caught up here. I've been meaning to get an update to @Sally Sunshine and some updates on our coop build so I finally got some construction pics:

This will be our bantam tractor. It's kind of a beast lol That's why my husband will be moving it 😉





Anyone care to take a guess on what my husband used for the window frame?
So let's see- it's been insulated, and next up will be finishing the sliding ventilation contraptions my husband has devised, then roof, hardware cloth, wheels, ramp, and where the tools are sitting will be a flower box 😊 ...then paint. Ugh. Still a ways to go yet!

Hatching update: I have 10 Marans (my flock) on day 19 in lockdown.... 4 more that also jumped in the bator now on day 16. Round 2 of shipped bantam Cochins came packed fantastic but all had loose or completely detached air cells. None are developing day 6 😕 I question my sanity with these shipped eggs but I'm going to keep trying I think.
We have Blue, Black & Splash Copper Marans, Calico/Mille Fleur and Self Blue Bantam Cochins, LF Cochins, and a laying flock of various heritage breeds, EE's, production breeds, mutts and more! We also have Quarter Horses, a pony and rescued dogs and cats. I usually have an incubator or 2 running too!
