I have been very patient this morning, I have been here sipping coffee and sitting on my hands for over an hour....
Not one of you thought to post anything for my reading enjoyment.
I moved the Dominiques out of the hatcher and under a MHP last night, I had 10 Dominque chicks from the 11 Dom eggs I got from Duane Urch. I was extremely happy with that. This morning the 11th chick hatched!
Of course, the Buckeyes are not doing as well, I have 1 hatched out of 6 that went into the hatcher, 6 were non starters. I have one with a hole in it, but not having a good feeling about it, the peck has been there for 18 hours now.
NO pips in any of the turkey eggs. And I am still short room in the hatchers for the 72 eggs I have ready to hatch tomorrow. I wonder if I lay them on the table if they would hatch? The other problem with the 72 eggs is they are resting in the bottom of the 1202. I need to make some room today, and then sneak them upstairs when Judy is not looking, she is off work today.
JJ is all excited today. The Lady Vet is coming back to see him. He has been doing his little dance since I told him about her impending visit.
Does it look like a wound? Or mites?
I shall do that, and thanks for the post! Now I can say I had something to read with my coffee...
I wonder If I should give JJ a bath before his date.
