I have a lovely collection of essays by Anne Fadiman called Ex Libris, which I adore The essay "The Joy of Sesquipedalians" is about a quiz made of the 22 words she (as someone with a very good vocabulary) did NOT know in a book she was reading (The Tiger in the House by Carl Van Vechten, written in the 1920s). Her brother knew 9, her father knew 12.

I've only ever heard a few and knew none well enough to comfortably use them in a sentence.

Most are only in the unabridged dictionary or the new lexicon.

 

I love the English language but when one writes, they are only supposed to use words and expressions at the 5th grade level so the majority of one's audience will understand. SAD!

 

Has anyone played the game 'Balderdash'? There are cards with very obscure actual words that most people wouldn't be familiar with that one player reads and everyone has to write down a definition of the word. The one reader then reads all the definitions along with the real one and people vote for the correct definition. The person with the most votes for their bogus definition wins.

It is one of the most fun games I've played. The more players the better. Too few and people will see a trend in answers and be able to identify who wrote them.

She got these words from a book written in the 1920s - the point the essayist (Anne Fadiman) was making was about the vocabulary used in that era vs. now - this was just a book about cats, and the author didn't expect anything else of the reader except that they were an average reader interested in cats, and the reader was fully expected to know these words. She was making the same point you are - the level expected of an average reader now. All of that being said, a word needs to be useful to be used, and if it is used, it will be remembered. I like $10 words, but mostly ones that are interesting and useful.

 

I looked them all up at the time, and STILL don't remember what most of them mean even after doing that (except retromingent - that was kinda gross...). That being said, I liked mephitic (autocorrect made it into mephitis above). It means stinky. :D

I did calibrate them. I ran the humidity low, started at around 30% noticed smallish air cells so I ran even lower, 20-25% temps were between 101.3 and 101.9. I have read the entire thread about incubation several times, even took screen shots to remember! Lol my temps since lockdown have been 98.5 ish. I just bumped it up a tiny bit, and the humidity has been 65-70%.

(With a short back story)

I've been looking for Buff Orpingtons everywhere and finally got my hands on some from a breeder. He had roosters in with the girls I bought off of him, so I did the reasourceful thing and chucked all the eggs that my new Big fat ladies laid into the incubator. Sure enough, a couple were fertile, and I'm expecting two lovely little Orpington chicks soon in about a week's time.

The catch is! One of the eggs was like a day (or two?) later to be set. So I was wondering if it would be chill for me to put them both into lockdown at the same time? Just because I want them to be able to chat while positioning and pipping away. (I like the three day lockdown, so D-18 for chooks, D-15 quail)

Advice anyone??

Thanks! smile.png

I stagger frequently.  - Hatches, I mean.

I would wait till day 19 or 20 for the first eggs to 'lockdown'. As long as enough moisture has been lost in the egg, higher humidity isn't essential till pip.

(I turned the thermostat control back and forth and wiggled it. Why that changed it, I have notta clue...)

I'm horrible at describing stuff, sorry. hmm.png

I do think I was able to fix the previous problem with what I did in the upgrades, which was to tighten the loose screws that were holding it to the bator.

It happened again this mornin, but only was goin down to 97....
I put a blanket over it at night, and this reading is taken the instant I take it off? I don't see how the blanket could impact it, bit thought I'd throw that out there.... You'd think if it was ambient temp it'd be down all the time, not just swinging.

The problem with blankets are twofold. Temp can rise too high and you may inhibit oxygen.

 

Incandescent lights generate heat but are prone to failure when they cycle on and off too frequently. They all have a duty cycle that causes them to fail - at the most inappropriate time. If you still want to use your screw in fixtures, you an switch to a ceramic heat emitter.

I prefer metallic heat elements that last much longer. You can still use some type of lamp in the circuit if you want to determine when power is being applied but you can get away with an LED or 7 watt incandescent.

Not that it matters. Any hawk can kill a chicken.

Cover in the form of brush in the run helps.

I had a hawk fly through a 40' long, 3' high hoop pen to get to some freedom rangers.

So what is on your agenda today?

It's going to be a wild ride temperature wise. It was supposed to hit 35 here today but hasn't gotten over 31 and is now dropping. Teens the next 3 nights then 32 day and night Friday. 52 Saturday with rain and 8 Saturday night. Very cold Sunday and Sunday night. If you can get your rooster through till Monday, I think we're out of the woods for cold till January and this weekend may be the worst of the winter.

 

I'm still not understanding your rooster's issues. It is virtually the same weather her most of the time and my birds are in buildings with huge ventilation.  Same breed, same strain, same weather. Frostbite issues take several days to show their worst damage so I don't think opening up the building did more damage. At 5 AM, the inside of an unheated building will be virtually the same temperature inside as out whether it is closed up or not, so I opt for better fresh air.

Saturday night will be tough here because the humidity will be sky high when the bottom drops out.

 

The only way I'd close up a building is if I could add enough heat to get it above freezing. Then you still have the issue with bad air from ammonia, fungus, bacteria and virus.

I wish I knew someone that used this 35lb  cat litter box  but not sure on the lid keeping closed with goats

 

 

That opener is essential. I bought a couple off of Ebay. I get lots of food grade pickle buckets free and keep most seed, grain and some feed in them.

The kitty litter box leaked on me and ruined lots of my pasture seed.

Keep in mind that a LG incubator uses a 40W heat element and I think at least one other manufacturer does too.

I had to come in out of the blind to make this reply, since I still can't do it on the 'puter in the blind. I hope you appreciate the sacrifices I'm willing to make for you!  :P I just want to give you a heads-up.

 

I had one of those buildings like your dad gave you. I called mine the "paper building". They're not cheap, money-wise, when you factor in how long they last. Yes, they are thicker than a regular tarp, and UV doesn't deteriorate them as quickly, although mine didn't last long enough for UV to be a problem.

 

The big problem with them is wind.They'd probably work out o.k. in a location that's protected from strong winds, like next to a shed or a block building, on the lee side. Mine, however, was out in the open, away from any protecting solid structures, and the wind literally shredded it in a relatively short time.

I bought one of those from Harbor Freight and a windstorm destroyed it. I built a chicken tractor out of the remains.

Hi Paddler!  what is eagle days?

I blew out these eggs this morning for breakfast. I'm obsessed with the gray ones! Need to find out who's laying them.

My work in the student foreign exchange field taught me that people's values are very similar regardless of where they come from.

That work also showed me the difference in the bulk of educational systems.

The majority our colleges are excellent while the majority of our primary and secondary schools in the US leave students largely unable to make the leap to college.

The system in many other industrialized countries is more seamless between grades.

 

Whether in primary, secondary or adult education, it is so easy to get lost here.

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 ūüė¨ūüė¨ūüė¨ 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!

No need to worry now. Any damage done is already water under the bridge.

IMHO, those temps are way too high. One must always consider that a thermometer can be off.

Commercial hatcheries use 99.5. That is ideal and what forced air should be. A still air uses the temp of 100.5 IF measured at the top of the egg. That would make internal temp at the center 99.5. So in a still air, it is all about where the temperature is being measured.

An embryo can survive at 98 but can die at 104. If you are measuring 102 and it is off by 2F, it could be 104.

If you're measuring 100 and it is off by 2F, the embryos will survive regardless of whether it is high or low.

Toward the end of incubation, embryos have some metabolism that allows them to deal with larger temporary swings.

The key word is temporary. A long time at high or low temps is always a problem.

??????

Well, here's all I can tell you about quarantine. Ideally it is 40 days as far from your flock as possible.1/4 mile is ideal.

That isn't possible for most people. None of my birds has ever died from a disease so let's consider outcomes. If that bird had a disease, it isn't one likely to show up but it could be one your birds aren't resistant to. So even after quarantine, if a bird that is resistant and brings in a disease he may never show symptoms during quarantine, but it could still impact the home flock. Quarantine won't impact that.

My best advice is to look him over closely for lice and mites (which my birds don't have) and then do with him what you would do to protect your birds from frostbite.

I just don't think the temperature is the problem. I still have a hen that wants to sleep in a building all by herself. I'll get some pictures of some roosters and their housing.

 

Is that main coop heated?

I'd still keep him somewhere cool/cold because re-acclimation would be an issue if brought into somewhere warm.

If he already has frostbite, he'll likely lose some comb and wattle but he'll survive.

I make two little holes in the egg and make them bigger with a pointy grinding bit from the dremel (I don't use the dremel itself). I stick a bread tie in the hole and swirl it around to break the yolk and albumen. Then blow! I use the insides for scrambled eggs. Fill the egg with water, shake, and blow again! Then it's all done.

That's when the Mississippi river freezes over and the eagles move down to Alton, IL, St. L. MO and points south to find open water so they can still fish. There is an old Chain of Rocks bridge where they have eagle education events and spotting scopes to let people view bald eagles perched along the banks.
