So first chance I get I'm gonna "try" to catch up.
I was looking up where my Vorwerks originated from and I came across these two videos.
All I can say is WOW!!! Just WOW!!! I just had to share. https://www.facebook.com/prasopsak.wonkerd/videos/447456322093362/?fref=nf
I hope the video link above works. It's about ducks. I wish I could understand what the gentleman is explaining in the video. It's just amazing how the ducks are handled. WOW!!
Very cool I also wish I understood it. Very very cool to see some farms in the US ought to consider this

Count their toes and see what color skin they have. When I've seen bantam bins they tend to be a mix and silkie chicks or Brahma chicks haven't been too unusual in my limited experience.
Also d'uccles, we got an amazing cockeral out of a bantam bin last year but sadly lost him to a freak accident.
Just had to say you all are driving me nuts been busy the last couple days I've missed you all. I was 200 posts behind.
Went and got the chicks from @junibutt last night of course we get there and our heating pad for the ride home breaks, luckily they were perfectly content with the heat on and snuggled in a towel, so no big deal right? Then on the way home we got sideswiped by a deer, saw those eyes bug out guys
lol, no worries the babies didn't even wake up and we're all okay. The deer even got up and ran away, and the car is almost completely fine. It wasn't until today we noticed a big clump of deer hair stuck in the wheel rim- that had to hurt and two little places with radiating cracks in the rear driver fender. All in all I think we all got off lucky the deer most of all we thought for sure it was gunna be dead. Wouldn't you know that happened maybe ten minutes from our house. Sorry got sidetracked anyway we get home and put the babies in their brooder and go to switch on the light and the filament in the bulb breaks. Ugh like you've got to be kidding. Luckily we found a temporary replacement bulb for last night and ran to the store today.
Sorry for the long-winded story but who would've thought.
Anyway without further ado heres my newest littles
Sorry about the picture quality will try to post some better ones soon.
Put shoes on the little white sport who has some slightly curled toes(both middle toes) thinking it is from being a late hatch but idk. I've never booted a chick before but I thought I'd better try before his/her bones stiffen.
I think the "crest" may be a bit smaller than the pics we all saw right after hatch I'm hoping this means the vaulted skull is healing but we'll see. In all other ways the white sport seems totally normal running playing eating and drinking. It does hate it's shoes. Can't wait to watch them grow and find out all the genders of the ones idk.
Thank you again @junibutt.
In other news our golden Laced sebright was in the nest box today as she's been thinking about going broody lol she managed to have 11 eggs in there and actually quite well covered considering only two were bantam eggs. If she commits she may also be joining the hatch-a-long Edited by chickendreams24 - 2/27/16 at 10:45pm
