Nope that is when you say but I thought of you when I saw this one and I thought you would like a pair of your own, It will save money, I can hatch my own and sell them, then they ask several months later, I thought you were going to sell some of the chicks, well I am but I have to see what they turn out like before I can sell them, and aren't they sooooo cute.

The forecast was for rain, so I drove my enclosed SUV instead of my pickup truck. Had the crate full of shavings, pdz, etc. My DH was with me, but he's not a chicken lover, and I have yet to hear the last of it. Well, he can stay home next time!
That is the smell of making me happy, you want me happy don't you and your spoiling the pleasure, which equals my happiness,

as for food coloring in the water, that's ok to do that, it won't effect the chicks to do that.
I have a question for all you hatching gurus, Have you ever started a batch and left home for a few days? I want to start some tuesday or wednesday, but we were planning a weekend trip next weekend and I'm not sure it would be a good idea to leave it unmonitored. I guess I can get one of my daughters to stop in every day and check it. Or I could just put it off a week and add the first few eggs I have dated to the selling carton.
Speaking of which, I was all excited because I got blue eggs two days in a row, now two days without one. Silly girls are just toying with me, in other words, just another typical part f life
I have gotten my 2nd blue egg and one (finally) leghorn egg, from the bunch I brought you from kingheman, speaking of which hasn't been on in a while.
