I love orloffs. I hope they all hatch.
Woo! My salmon faverolle is running around the brooder this morning strong and happy. Can't take a picture because I am away on spring break. If this chick is a girl, it's name is Nancy after my pet sitter that got Nancy the chick out of its shell and saved it's life. Love watching my webcam with happy little chicks running around
That's so awesome! I'm glad she is doing well!
Well guys if you can believe it. We officially have now 4 broodies and may have a fifth considering it, what in the world am I gunna do?! We already had to make more nest boxes lol. We have three silkies and a buff Orpington(who's been considering brooding since last fall) the silkies are all two days apart I think I'd have to check my notes and the buff will be set tonight.
I have three momma hens and a broody also! Lots of broody pens being set up for the mom's and their chicks so the chicks don't drown with all the spring rain coming in. Broodies love to start setting in the spring.
Awesome! I'm glad one was alive!
Congratulations! That's so cool!
I have some news on my 18/24 clear eggs. I emailed the breeder just to see if they could clarify their fertility rates because even though my eggs came through the post it just seemed too many to be clear. She emailed back to say the eggs she has candled are at 50% and below on fertility and are way lower than expected. She has suspended sales untill this improves. Once they improve she is sending me 18 eggs free of charge
On another point I'm picking my dream eggs up on Thursday of Tolbunt polish
That's so nice of her.
And of course congrats on the Tolbunts, they're so pretty!
I'm so sorry to hear that.
Sometimes eggs can survive high temperatures if it isn't for too long. How long was it like that?
I'm so sorry. That is terrible. I'm glad you were able to save her eggs. I hope they all hatch nice and healthy as her legacy.
