I have had a crazy day! you are all chatty tonight and I am catching up while i work on 'Homework'...
Ive been to the library and this is my 'homework'!
Wow you guys are a chatty bunch. 111 posts since I was last on yesterday! whew!
Not too much going on here with us. I am disappointed to see that no one decided to win the retirement investment fund. Makes me wonder what kind of greedy Minnesota friends I have waiting until the Saturday draw.
I hope to take some pictures soon of the cattle to show you the ladies.
See ya all tomorrow.
Minnesotanice I hope you get a handle on the cold/flu or whatever the birds have.
You people are going to think I am nuts. BUT I think I found another rooster in my Creamettes. Again a younger one. The ones I am finding are my younger ones, and they are not pure breeds either. I think that hen that got free, most have really liked Ole.
The other thing is Ole eggs seemed to have hatched at a higher rate than my CLB's. Of course, my CLB eggs did not have a high rate of success. I put it down to my inexperience or incubator problems. I am now thinking the CLB eggs were just not that fertile. My other eggs hatched at a higher rate than the CLB's did. The only good thing about finding these CLB imposters is they will not get a chance to breed and ruin my purebred ones if a mutt like a CLB can be a purebred.
I had one hen I threw out of the Creamette coop too, She just did not look good enough to me to keep her eggs.
I am glad we have one more day before the deep freeze starts. I need to try and get Bert's gals new coop done and moved into place today.
After that I am going to get back to the honey do list and work on incubators. I need to get the "new" 1202 fired up and stabilized. I might have run a test batch through it.
Anyone have a birds eggs they need hatched? I could become a real hatching addict, I enjoy it so much.
Both I have 28 in the incubator and I am collecting eggs still. I will put more in on Saturday. I only have 14 this week to set. I do not want the eggs over a week old? Did you need a Creamette chick?
