I guess I need to fire up the incubator and give it a test run since my last run gave me 2 ducklings. Hopefully it will do better since the temp shouldn't drop to 11 in the house

I am way behind...

WELCOME to all the folks that joined in the last 10 pages. I saw a few were new to incubating. I am too. Congrats!!! And I can't wait to read about your progress!

On a personal flock note, today was bad. Our neighbors dog broke into our run and killed 4 of our chicks today. Of course it only took 30 seconds and both myself and my kids were there to watch. This is our families first lose. I know they are chickens (as many say) but my eyes still had tears in them and my heart still broke. And today, after 2 particularly cruel comments, I made a decision that even if my farm animals are a future casseroles for our family or snack for a predetor, it will be loved while with me. This means that I may be more upset when thier life is over and that people will make fun of me, but, my animals will also, hopefully, only have 1 bad day in thier lives.

I am sure that everyone here has a similar story to mine and mine is not special. We learned a lot about chickens today. And locking options. I hope tomorrow's lesson is a simpler one, like "Chickens like lettuce".

Humans (4) - Me, Adventurous Husband, Go-Getting Daughter and a Son that communicates with all animals

Dogs (2) - Miniature Pinscher and Plott Hound    Cat (1) - A greige Tortie/Tabby

Chickens (25) - Brabanters, Spitzhauben, Barred Rock, Welsummers, Buff Orp, Easter Eggers, Gold Sex Links

Ducks (4) - Anconas, more coming 6/5     Beehives (1) - Italian Honeybees, more to come

I am sorry! I feel the same way when the birds pass away. I know each of them and they are friendly (for the most part). Some people just think of them as birds, and that's perfectly fine. But, they also have to consider how other people feel. I hope the next days are better.
