I sent her with 12 eggs in hopes that 6 will hatch. I have no idea what i sent except that some were from conrad's flock an some were from Buck's flock. i picked a few of what i though were Rainbow eggs and what i hope are Buckeye over Barred rock. we will see what kind of barnyard mutts i get
i was hoping to pick some cornish eggs but they all laid yesterday and are on break today i guess. oh well!
it is pouring rain again now. eek!
Kloppers it's fun to live vicariously through those kindrgarteners. Imagine what they will be soaking in and remembering about the best science experiment ever. Eggs to baby fluff balls of extreme cuteness. I cannot think of a more impressionable science experiment personally!
Tonight -- just a little while ago-- I candled Dixie's two eggs. I could not see any thing but yolk in the NH/BLRW egg. I am not very experienced at candling. The welsummer egg-- I saw a chick embryo zigging and zagging with the light moving around. Yes the welsummer egg!!! I'm so pumped about that!!!

THANKS GUYS!!!! You really helped! LOL I told you some of my options and by telling you I could make a decision of how to remedy this for the time being and then move that coop around on Mother's Day (because DH will agree to that just because it is Mother's Day and hes nice to me on that day - LOL)
DH needs a walking stick for his truck or the walk between the house and shop. My DH had a couple come to Jesus meetings in the early years with the Big Tootsie. Now they have mutual respect. The stick can be used to just herd or push him away. Or can be used to flip him over on his back and embarrassing Tom in front of his hens. Or. My FIL and dear dad like to bring their fishing nets when babysitting dear Tootsie. Roger is usually steering clear after a netting during chore time.Edited by Bogtown Chick - 4/25/16 at 7:22pm
