Well I have been having a time with the incubators and lost the first 2 batches due to temp spikes so when I saw my 10 mo. old silki sitting on her egg I stuck eggs under her that had been laid the same day. We had a cold spell for 2 days and one night it dropped into the upper 20's. I did not expect to see what I saw this morning.
My 5 year old granddaughter and I happened to walk out the basement door to see momma silki out of the dog. carrier and these three beauties with her. I am sooooo excited. This girl is a keeper! So this might be my only hatch for April but I have more in the incubator and 3 more under momma silki.
Awesome! Such cute chicks!
And the sun is OUT!!!! Wow, My #TheSunWillComeOutUmmmNowWouldBeGood sure did work fast. I don't know how long it we will have sunshine but all the creatures seem to be enjoying it. Birds are chirping, deer are roaming, dogs are barking, bees are on my trees, chickens are in clean run and my cat is in the window. Let the Vitamin D be absorbed!
Also, I just found out that I will be receiving 6 Spitzhauben tomorrow in the mail from a "wait list" I was apparently on that I didn't remember. Good thing my brooder can be compartmentalized as I have 13 2wk olds in there, and tomorrow 6 (likely 15 with extras knowing my luck) day olds and ducks in 10 days... Ummmm, how did I go over 30 chickens again?!
I'm glad the sun came out! I'm glad you are getting the Spitzhauben eggs you don't remember ordering!
