I'm glad Godzillas doing we'll! Sorry about Pop
did u know we lost my grandpa who was currently married to my grandma that I had cared for? Not even a month ago. We had a rocky relationship but there was a parental type of lifelong, unconditional love there, and it was very sad even at 94. I'm sorry (Buster? I forget Everything but I think I mailed this one!) is stalled. Maybe if u change the schedule he's out himself on, tie him outside in the AM, bring him in at night, to help u furthure work with him? Maybe give Godzilla a new job to walk him on leash (with lots I treats) around the yard each day, so they have time to bond?
I'm no whisperer these r just some things I would try.
I've been staying busy, enjoying the warmth and hatching the mess outa some eggs. Most of my hatchers are sold, but I picked up all this CX. Hated them at first, but now theyre in a large area vs where I got em from, and low n behold they're acting a bit like chickens.
I think my first real project has really been rooted now. I have three hens remaining from my first hatch of Bresse, they're laying (20 wks they started!) I bought one of their fathers to properly line breed them, and 18 more eggs to bump my hen count, today's their due date.
Got abuncha free bunny cages thru a friend, 10 holes in total, to use for raising quail. I have 20 coturnix quailings currently, restarting, last line was total garbage, they were sickly from hatch, hatched from thin shells, half cracked, it was a mess.
I got my own copy of the SOP! And the second bator, a 20 eco in add to the 40 adv I've had 6 months now. I got six Svart Hona chicks 8 wks ago! And a couple extras who r likely mix bred. They're all really neat
I have two of those, 20 eco and 40 adv, and I've found it doesn't matter how expensive they are, u Cannot trust the humidity or temp gauge alone, u really Have to have a second thermometer at the Very least n there. That being said, I
mine they hold steady as a rock, day and night, it's up to us to make sure they're holding at the right temp
I had a hard time with that during the winter, had to adjust for the cold, who knew?
