So here's the scene for my birds until we repair/reinforce pens. The Brahmas (EIGHT of them) are in the grow-out pen since it has two solid walls. Hubby barricaded them on the other two sides. Ain't it pretty? gig.gif

To the right is the wood coop where the bantams are staying (eleven of them).. It's not quite as tight a swueeze for them as the Brahmas since they can fly to different levels, but still not ideal. I hope to be able to get them back to their pen tonight (that's the one that was broken into) and the Brahmas by Friday or Saturday.

Hubby moved the Brahmas all by himself while I worked yesterday evening. Not a big deal for us chicken lovers, but I know he's not quite as enamored as I am so I was very thankful for him doing that without me asking. <3

I'm so impressed with his barricading abilities.. He didn't miss a thing! LOL

Four mixes, different birds covered by a RIR Roo, and 5 CCL x Isabella Leghorn crosses. The CCL mixes were shipped, so 5 of 15 are making it to lock down. Not half bad for shipped eggs in a cheapo incubator, I think.

Mine are actually due on the 15th.   Waited on silkie eggs, but I don't think I'm getting anything out of those.   The others I'm hoping are RIR, but could be mixed.    It was 2 weeks after we separated them out, so could go either way.

Oh, and one hen flew out of the pen and the Olive Egger got her twice before I could catch her.   

 

Guess we will see.

 

 

 

I'm bummed at the moment.  

Went out this morning to check on/feed the 26 babies who are 1 week and 2 weeks old. 
They are in their brooder box,in my feed room of the coop, with a heat lamp on top of the wire lid.

Lamp was still warm, the stuff over the other end was still there, but those babies were COLD!
Lost one of daughter's Lavender Ameraucanas, and 3 of my 5 Welsummers look a bit wobbly.
I gave them some Poultry Nutridrench, added a second heat lamp, and moved the brooder box inside. Changed the shavings and fresh food and water.
Hoping the others didn't get too chilled for too long. 
Most are eating and drinking up a storm now.

Still looking for a black Orpington rooster.   LOL, the rest of my wishlist is met for this year :)

Well, a new big cabinet incubator would be amazing.

Egg was from the Black Ameraucanas from CarCar that had been on strike.

I put them with my RIR, and I think the peer pressure got to the one at least.

Hoping for more today :)

That's the way it appears... We didn't find any bodies and there was no signs of scuffle, and there coop door was open. So either they mysteriously disappeared without a trace or they were helped..

Ok.. my babies eat all day and night barely sleeping. So when is enough food enough. Im going thru a pint size bag of food every 2 days. Does that seem a bit for chicks who are barely 2 weeks..
