One chick Chris? No hope at all for any of the other 12?
Adding more day-olds would be good, if that's an option. I guess if you don't want to raise one little by itself, can you give it away, or cull it?
Any time Dr. Who comes up I find myself going "Who?"...know nothing about it. But I'm ok with that.
Chris, I'd give it away if possible. I don't know that I could snuff it. DH could, but not me. Sorry about the hatch, that's disappointing.
Where's Phil? I think he has some duck eggs he was hatching. Wonder how his is going.
Time to run errands. I was outside with the girls but the wind was blowing so they didn't want to be out playing. Twits, lol.
Thanks all - I reckon it will go the same way as England's cricket team as i speak - down the pan
WV -all other eggs snookered so maybe better i break my broody (her neck, the mood i am in ) and get on with things.
Sir Sour - I have no doubt that your attire does not affect your mischiefing capabilities!
Strangely enough, thats another thing i have to do tomorrow also -one girl that has suddenly developed a terrible limp and no external sign of injury. Guess i only have to sharpen the knife once and kill 2 birds with one stone (well, knife). I'm not squeamish, but there's no pleasure in culling for any of us (unless its a roo thats gored you a few times - and even then its more of a relief).
Onwards and upwards - my plan for tomorrow is to try and talk a breeder into selling me white leghorn chicks that he actually has as part of his breeding programme - hope he's had a good weekend!
I'll need more than gin, but I'll see. Sorry about your golden comet Phil - mine do free range and apart from the very odd hawk nonsense they generally do ok.
Human beings really live in such conditions? Thats not good for the soul (unless you like ice fishing, eh Phil?)
