Funny story - this is Astrid, my EE. She is a very sweet bird, who has a special relationship with my daughters chi-pug mix, wally.

 

Wally likes to chase the birds... well Astrid realized that wally is playing games, and if you watch long enough, he chases her around, will stop and puppy bow and the next thing you know, he's being chased by her, and you just see this blur of silver waddle past you as she chases him circles in the yard.

 

I haven't quite figured out if she's playing the same game he is though, but since neither seems overly stressed out by the antics.... I've let them be.

 

She's quite the girl.

lol  video please

Shortly, I went out to bring in another load of wood, and discovered  4-5 chickens next to a clear plastic window well cover. They'd evidently been pecking at it; sounding for all the world like someone knocking!

Hope it helps and good luck.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

All the teacher of the student , the School Counselor and the school principal seats together and see all the student grades, and absence from school and decision are taken about the future of the student in the school and info flow all around that helps us to be informed about our students, this discussion take place twice a year.

oh I see!!!

 

They do that at the elementary school!  Lucas was evaluated for the gifted program that way and then he had to do tests and sit with the school psychologist and they made us fill out so much paperwork I was about to say, NO leave us alone!!!

Because a chicken that weighs 2 lbs is going to be WAY easier to handle and hold than a chicken who is say, 8 or 9 lbs.

They had all been moving and rocking until today. I only witnessed 2 of them moving. Totally normal? Or should I be worried? I mean, I am worried 😬😬😬 but should I stop!?! No pips, no peeping in shell. Also I had read in the incubation thread to keep the temp at 98-98.5 degrees for the last three days. I have a still air, should I bump it to 99-99.5? Thanks in advance!

Hi Ladyfarm, wait and see what happens, what temp have you run in still air from the start?

 

what have you done with humidity?  and did you calibrate thermo/hygros? 

 

 

in case you ran low.... 

Incubators with fans and without fans need to run at DIFFERENT TEMPS! post #9068
