Upon closer inspection i discover it's a flowerbed stone.She said April Fool !
She's a nut.
LOL...love it! She gotcha!
I don't have much faith that it will. It was in the 20s the other night and the chicks are only partially feathered.
Thanks y'all. I'm tired and little upset, but otherwise ok.
Prayers your way.
Thanks everyone for your well wishes!!
Hubby's knee has a piece that broke loose inside it last week...the cartilage in the knee is slowly being damaged over time. He's being sent for an MRI and possibly surgery again (3rd time). Worse thing is he always gets pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lung...twice already.)
they have that under control THIS time. 'Cause I need more chicken coops!!
(Oh...you know I'm just jokin'!!! )
Wow. I think we should take lessons from the bears and hibernate during the winter.
Oh gosh...I couldn't agree more!!
Hey! That's stealing!!
(You deserve all the hugs you get and more!!!)
I love all my hens!
Hens? Hens? For some reason that makes me feel even older than I already do...
I have no idea why.
Awwww heck, who am I trying to kid...I AM old!
Ok so after a few hours she wouldn't go back to the nest so i confiscated the rest of the eggs. How NASTY ! There were 4 way down under everything else and i could tell by the smell it wasn't gonna be good. Those 4 i threw toward the field. Of course one of the bad ones fell at my feet and broke Brought the rest in and candled, one more was smelling nasty, had about 4 clear, so i have 2 that look promising and 2 i'm just not sure about. That makes 4 ???? The problem is, with them all having set on top of the nasty ones they all have an odor. SO ! I put ? on a couple that i will candle again tomorrow and put them way to one side of my bator, away from the ones i have in there. The others i will candle and if any movement i will keep. So hoping nothing explodes on me.
Cathy how are you feeling?
Doing ok. Got walking today. Belly button hurts.
I dont own a brooder plate
I hang a 40-60 watt incandescent VERY low, with a thermo under it.
One thing I noticed.
Coupla days ago I put the lid on the brooder, but cracked enough for airflow.
They have been SO QUIET.
Not a peep.
I reckon this is what folks talk about the chicks being quieter with brooder plates, cept I got the same effect for cheaper.
As far as the sound level goes.
