Today I am actually catching up on two days of homework from being at his place last week.

I am hatching now. But just Creramettes and toads. I have 4 little roosters left, I am keeping them, for now. If I decide to show I need a January bird. I might keep 3 hens from Sundays hatch. I think I have 40 hatching on the 15th of Feb.
I am moving the PC's into their own pen this weekend. BUT I will not be able to set any eggs from them until about March 1st. I want to make sure the chicks are pure and there are too many other roosters with them now. Same as the BA's EE I can do sooner but they will be mixed breeds but what EE isn't.
You should come and visit my turkeys some time. They will convince you how badly you need them. Maybe Borrow one or two for a week.... They like to watch the hallmark channel with their evening beer.
They were all CLBs. I set 28 eggs.
At 12 days I candled 8 that were not developing clears and near clear. I did not throw them just incase.
3 days before hatch I moved 20 eggs after candling again. The 8 were definitely bad.
I hatched 17 out of the 20. I did not open the last three eggs, I was goingto but Judy threw them out before I got around to it.
SO 17 out of 28. Which I am actually very happy with as it was so cold during the collection time and I lost some to being frozen. I was scared more than that would have been killed by the cold.
On a side note, I have my first eggs in the 1202! It holds amazing temps so tight.
Happy Birthday Holm!!
Are you old enough to get married to that chicken woman now?
