They are lazy lumps and are getting use to their new enclosure
I even got the pool ready and yet they just don't care 😂
Mother hen took over the other pen again with her chicks
My dewlap egg hatched early this morning and much to my surprise, it is a buff girl!!
The white egg I put into hatcher with my most awesome new buff girl is still alive, but once again has turned into the wrong position. As such I do not expect it to externally pip and hatch. But at least I got a buff baby!!
Thanks, guys! I'm super excited about my newest addition! She is so big... at less than 12 hours old, she is already twice the size of my 2.5 week old chicks. I tried to introduce her to her designated foster mother, but the family with the older goslings kept getting in the way. I will try again tomorrow, but am reluctant to part with her just yet.
Liz, glad to hear your girls survived their first breeding season without any problems. You should have plenty of fertile eggs next year.
My beautiful buff gosling is getting her legs under her so I moved her into the chicks pen this morning. She is 3x the size of the chicks but they seem to really like her and the integration was smooth. I took her out to meet the adult dewlaps again this afternoon. Two different buff boys were very interested in her and either would be a good foster parent. I will have to decide which to give her to very soon.
