Yes, those are definitely magpies.

Hi all!

 

Just curious - why is crested a bad thing?  Is it just ducks?  I have never seen it referred to a negative in chickens....

 

I know vaulted skulls are really cute, but it makes them more vulnerable - their skull is less protected.  

 

Thanks!

So the last one is in the bator still. It is almost all dry but the leftovers are still hanging from the vent by a tiny thread, the leftovers seem to be drying up.

Not sure what percentage that is since i do not want to do the math since i am busy but that seems pretty good to me! (And i have 25 eggs in storage for incubation big_smile.png )

:woot  Congratulations!

frow.gif   Hi MC what are you two up to?

Well... She loves the hamster (so far she hasn't forgotten, and kicked a field goal with the hamster in its ball!), and then I introduced her to the hermit crabs. gig.gif She saw the shell, then tiny little fingers jumped out at her! She stepped back, and said, "I don't like that one!" Late this morning, she wanted to see them. We played with them for about fifteen minutes. She isn't too bad with them!
Then... (aren't you sorry you asked?!) I bought a popcorn maker while Heather was here. I had Duckling work it. lol.png When she saw the popcorn shooting into the bowl, she grabbed two spoons, and caught it. I didn't flavor it, so she only ate a little. But she had a lot of fun! She threw snowballs at me while doing chicken chores, and I found my first two turkey eggs, as well as two SPR eggs. My first SPR eggs in that coop!

OMG and the hamster is ok?  Not sorry I asked no, congrats on the turk eggs!  and whatever spr is too lol

hi
its still absorbing, yawning is a good sign, if it just nicked a vein it should be ok


Don't start helping too soon and compromising others
it wasn't much blood I've got it by the incubator window so I can see what's going on. I'm going to leave it for an hour go and do some things then go and check it again. I really do hope it survives

nothing you can do now, good luck!

Here they are:
Blue Ameraucana




EE
He looks a little rough because of the recent fighting.



I say AM 

 

funny that EE except for the beard my ice roo looks like his coloring as well!

Saving all of a hatch is not very realistic. Use the event to explain life and death in nature and whatever your religious beliefs are.

I seriously believe that the less you mess with eggs the better they do. The temptation to help is HUGE but I am pretty sure helping kills more chicks than it saves. I have learnt the hard way too.

Set 49 eggs 3 weeks ago. Added water to the Bator 4 times only. Pulled 7 blanks a week ago and this morning have 35+ chicks and the rest look pipped.
Pure neglect seems to work perfectly.

It seems this is VERY true, I think every icelandic chick has a pip right now, and almost all the serama are out here, the oe are just starting lol.  half the time I forget to turn them, bad me!
