Sorry Ivie asked for these the day the eggs went in the incubator..LOL
I heard a little purr and soft cluck this morning as I left the coop after morning chores and opening the pop door. I turned to find my only egg layer following me back up towards the house. Lucy.
This was her Destination. The Free Range Nest Box. Almost a Football field's distance from the Coop. Through New Snow. She Pecked along and pecked along.
The Food Lady did concede and provide Transport due to Icy and Snow Conditions on the Snow Path. Not knowing how pressing the Egg Matter was.
In She Goes and is still is as I type this.
I will be going! Judy is going to Washington DC that weekend with some friends. So I am free and I should have my NPIP by then!
Here is this morning's Fuzzy Butt pictures!
These are the Speckled Sussex. I am very happy with them, they are large, appear healthy and active, all the toes are straight and the feet point straight ahead..
I love the yellow bellies. King George might be a bellybutton but his babies are perfect.
Now I just need to find a home for them. If I don't it is no biggie, I can never have too many chickens...(not Judy's belief at all).
And here is the latest white sport, I think I see a spot on his head. Which means I have a breeding pair of white sports in 5-6 months!!!
Jerry And EJB, I can really use your help on whether what I see is the right mark. Hope the picture works.
The downy cuteness is beyond words.
NOW the good news..
Tomorrow's hatch has started tonight. I have 3 new baby Speckled Sussex!! All three of their eggs hatched. They are little cuties..
And I have 1 Creamette hatch, a little White sport! SO far this is the best hatch. Heck 4 hatched the day before they should of instead of the day after...
I'd like to see some young British Babies.
Dah . . . . excuse me but what are the british girls again?
My nickname for the Speckled Sussex..... I mean SUSSEX!! has to be British gals!
That is why I named the rooster King George...
I have one Buckeye Holm. She's a beast. She weights 7 or 8 lbs and she eats like that too. So excellent dual purpose. She has not laid eggs for me since last spring so I suspect the Fallopian tube infection with her. ugh...
But here she is. She's a gorgeous hen. huge. Little feisty on the roost...but I think others have picked on her too.
