Wow...!!! I am offline for a few days taking care of some stuff and the forum explodes! 700 posts to catch up on... and counting. LOL! Someone want to catch me up (the shortened version, lol).
Oh, I put 4 duck eggs in last week. I think I timed it right. 28 day hatch would put them hatching out sometime New Year's Day(unless my Muscovy drake snuck a little Pekin tail). This is my first bunch of mixed ducklings. I was hatching pure pekins but I got a few new (colorful) drakes this past spring and they are finally getting down to business.
Still working on getting some chicken eggs (soon, I hope). I am overflowing in backyard mixed eggs(15 set for mid-month hatch), but I am getting some pure eggs possibly some bantams as well. I am heading to the farm possibly Wednesday so I should have them in plenty of time.
In the meantime, I would like to introduce Lemon and Gracie. The two newest additions to the chaos that in my home. (DH just spoils me, lol. He is such an enabler, lol!)
