This is from early this morning.
There are more in there now but I am out getting icecream! It's also easier to post pictures from my phone than transfer them to the computer then post.
Anyone else use puppy pads in the brooder?
Just to clarify...by "last hatch", I meant last weeks hatch, not the New Years hatch which were all perfect. :)
You missed everything!
A Pigeon is pipping. Some are not home and one person has an Aunt giving updates. There was a 7 of 7 hatch and a 10 of 11 hatch. Spradle leg has happened to two of us.
There was one assisted hatch picture and one hatcher is worried because they are rocking with no external pips yet. A couple of us had breakfast too!
I am on my second cup of coffee...
Omg!!! How do you do it???
I can't keep up. But I'm trying... I can't even log off properly in my delirious state of overtiredness...came in this morning and I'm still logged in. I thought I had logged out. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it. )
I still have no idea why that one batch of chicks were all malpositioned. The chicks that all hatched perfectly yesterday are from the same parents....Must have been an incubation problem?
I never log off...I just keep the page up and it looks like I'm always lurking. I'm usually outside though I can't keep up either, though this thread is easier than Sally's Hatching with Friends, which I try to stay part of....
They will be fine!
You are waking them up! Of course they will crow then--they want you to come see them They love you!
I had to use ear plugs last night--They really like to announce their hatch---Loudly!
But I'm so quiet. My roosters don't even know I'm at the farm in the house.
(I LOVE them too)
(Maybe I have too many roosters.)
And I forgot how LOUD the chicks are! WOW! We were playing a board game when the first chick announced it's arrival. Whew...it had a nice set of lungs. I'm SO glad that the other chicks have arrived so they're quiet. I have my bator at the office (old farm house where the coop is too.) I can leave it and go home and not hear the loud cheeping. You guys do well to have them nearby...lol.
How did I forget they're that loud?
Sometimes I use puppy pads in the brooder and as liners for the dog beds...
I'm coming over for ice cream!
