I figured out a way I may be able to do the NYD Hal. I'm cleaning out the basement/laundry room today. All my brooder stuff is already down there and I can't believe I didn't think of brooding down there before!! No one wants smelly chicks in the house over winter. But I can definitely brood downstairs! Heck, they can live down there till spring! My only concern is loosing power. What's the cheapest generator you can buy?? Anyone ever lose power with chicks around over winter? I mean chicks are pretty hardy. I had mine weened off heat and outside by 3 weeks! And that was in November and they did great. Anyway, hope everyone is having a good day. I'm working on a way to enable my addiction...what's new!
How about a hatch update??
I forgot to ask, what colors were the ducklings in the pics? Where the first ones white??@RavynFallen
How cold does it get if you loose power? I had 2 chicks in the garage both under a week. Light went out one night and they died in 60 degree garage.
Congratulations SC! I hear there was a parade? Is that true?
I need to thin my cockerels. I'm going to endup with a trio of breeders in the end. I hope the eggs are dark. I should know by March or April.
I think I finally figured out how to market eggs so I can fire up my incubators.
I'm selling the EE eggs for $20 a dozen and that comes with hatching service. So if they want to set and hatch on their own, $12 a dozen, but for a small additional fee I will set and hatch. Anything that comes out of the eggs they bought is theirs.
I have someone wanting 25+ chicks, so just working out the details before I fire up the incubator!
That's a great idea Walnut!
How are they coming along WV? I had a pip this am on my weekly 3 staggered eggs.
