She knows better than to try to get me to go to walmart. (she rarely goes there herself even though it's the closest big box store to the house) I'll gladly go to TSC. I was too busy yesterday to get the farmer's market. I was bummed. I really wanted some fresh goat meat and some more hot head cheese. And berries.
I went to the grocery store only. Too bad you didn't make it to the farmer's market, is that only on Saturdays?
All sounds delicious, except the coconut.
Did Whites and Phil have new grandsons?
whites great grandson I believe!
GGD, actually, but close enuf! Still a curtain climber, rug rat & another little one to spoil, then give back to Mommy Revenge is sweet!
Happy Birthday to him!
Hi! I've got 2 incubators running and 3 hatches scheduled for the coming week and a half! First hatch has 22 eggs, going to post photos one egg has a weird air cell, should I worry? Im taking them off the turners tomorrow night and getting this lockdown deal going will be this years first hatch and our first hatch with our own eggs so we are all excited! Been muddy and we had an egg get smashed in the breeding coop so I've not been saving so many eggs for the next incubation. I will hatch in the one incubator, clean it out and put the next few eggs in lockdown in there and then clean that out again after that hatch and then the other incubator goes into lock down and the first one will get 42 eggs - I have 24 ready already and about 8 days till I should load it up and with 10 hens in breeding coops I've been getting 6-7 eggs a day and it's sort of touch and go on the cleanliness front, so I'm just keeping the clean ones for incubation and rotating them and what not... I figure if I get 5 good eggs a day on average for 8 days that's 40 more eggs and after I go through it and pick out the imperfect ones I will have like 50? And whatever's left can go in the next batch... Or maybe I will have a broody please universe lol. Any of you move broody hens? I'm thinking about how to go about that if one goes broody can I put her somewhere safer than the barn? How many eggs would one put under a broody?
A lot of hatching planned. Some people move broody hens, I never have. I let them hatch where they chose.
I'm sorry, I can't see the contents of the photo very well.
Some cute photos from this morning before the rain started:
Lavender ameraucana (6.5 weeks) - pretty little cuddle monkey, this one is. I think it may end up being a cockerel, but I may keep him anyway.
Here's Dotty, chronic escapee from her paddock (she drives her rooster to distraction worrying for her, poor guy). I can hear her now, "I'm too sexy for my coop..."
And finally, three crazy girls all trying to share the same nest box:
