Nope, we just lift the fort flap and invite folks in. Rules are : Bring treats to share. No smoking. AND NO LEGOS!!!!
Well, the six eggs I won in BYC'S caption contest arrived today - all 11 of them! <Gulp!> Shipped from Colorado on Tuesday so it was pretty much a straight shot for them - not much handling involved, weather has been super nice, and no drastic altitude changes. Too light to candle yet, but I did take a quick peek and I didn't see any obviously horrible air cells! The other incubator is fired up, humidity looks good and it's holding temps pretty well, so I'm hoping for a good outcome! I got them from @nate1the1great1, and what a bang-up good job of packing. Our postmistress got such a big kick out of the box they were sent in that she took photos of it. I'll take some pics in a bit and get them up.
In the box were eggs that, if they hatch, will be such a treat for Katie and Kendra! If you don't know who my granddaughters are, here's their story. They are amazing and they hold my heart in their little hands, I'll tell ya....
3 Black Australorps (and if I spelled that wrong don't tell me!)
1 Easter Egger
1 Silkie (Kendra's!)
2 Bantams (but I don't know if they are Bantams of a particular breed or what. Those will be Katie's)
1 Naked Neck (not sure what i'm going to think of that one. )
I'm on Day 16 with the others. Still 8 viable so hope springs eternal.
