are the eggs still OK?  They are almost a week along.

I didn't see were anyone had caught this post and replied... I would say leave them be and see what happens. I've heard of people finding nests completely under water and still having them hatch! These eggs are pretty hearty sometimes. Good luck and keep us posted on if they hatch! hugs.gif

Morning! I am going to Fowlfest too big_smile.png We should come up with something to put on us that identifies ourselves as Michigan Thread people! Hmmmmm...any ideas?  I'd hate to think that a bunch of us had the chance to meet in person and didn't take advantage of it!

Nice paintings Total... losing your site and dexterity is very frustrating as an artist!   I had to break down and get a magnifier/light to do my drawings.

 

Mich, so glad to see you back.   Hope you're feeling up to snuff soon!

 

I just read an article about root canals....   I hope you're feeling better too!

 

I've wondered about eggs covered in yolk being able to hatch too... anyone got experience with that?

 

Our new, old, neighbor asked if he could have some of our old fencing we had on the junk pile... so we took it to him.  He's wanting to get some chickens soon.  I offered to give him a rooster and hen to get him started, cause he doesn't have much money.  It's nice that he's a bit of a neat freak, after the neighbors that lived there before him were just the opposite.  He's funny to talk to because he's very abrupt and doesn't stay on a topic very long.

 

Well, just as I figured... my BBW hen went broody, sat on the eggs........ and proceeded to crush them all!  LOL!  At least the royals are laying in a separate nest and there's still hope they'll go broody.

 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

 

Good Luck Opa, my DH got a ticket too.... I'll buy you a chicken, and granny a new flag (I love that she enjoys flying one, so many people don't anymore.)

Olive, I wiped off the eggs and we'll see what happens. ((Sigh)) I need to put a bell on that kid. lau.gif   I always figure it's worth putting them in for 5 days until I can candle them to see if they're developing. I'm candling my shipped eggs tonight...I peeked yesterday at a couple and could see development. fl.gif

Morning everyone. TGIF right?? Too bad its so dang cold out. I wanted to sleep in...I was having one of those really really good dreams that I wanted to keep going, but then my alarm went off. Jerk. So here I am at work, but hopefully the day goes quick. And I hope the rain holds out here today!

Or if you want to "cook" your own I can get you the gals name that has the eggs. She has another dozen sitting there.
 

I'm in Greenville.  RIRjen is somewhat close, but DH would require another reason for the hour drive.  Perhaps if I can convince him to let me go to chickenstock getting one from her might work.  As for your eggs, it would depend how far you are from me.  I would love to 'cook' my own, but that would require me to have something to do so with other than a frying pan.  tongue.png

 

I'm getting a bit of a slow start today and right now I should start getting ready, but I am just taking a few moments before I do.  DH and I have a 2 hour drive ahead of us to a little town called Hartford.  Hopefully, we don't get lost, but I have taken the forethought to mapquest the route and we should be alright.  Since we'll be gone til who knows when, the chickens will most likely stay inside today which is okay because it is brr cold outside.  Hope you all have a pleasant day.

frow.gif  Hello!  I will put you on my prayer list!  I keep a list of people to pray for  (Mom2's healing, Nova's headache, Hope's stepdad's neighbors, RaZ's leg and back) and I will add you to the list!

 

Now here is the funny part!  I never believed in prayer and I am a real 'do it yourselfer'.......so in every hard time I would do all that I could to 'fix' things.  That's exhausting.  And then I came up against things I couldn't fix anymore (my mom's dementia, my husband's brain cancer, my dad's leukemia) and so I prayed.  And guess what?  Really nice stuff happened.  And I realized that prayer works, not to make things go our way, but somehow it has an effect. 

 

  And how easy is it when you are driving or in the bath tub or falling asleep to let your mind drift over all the needs of others and wish them many blessings? It's easy!  So michickenwrangler, you are on my list!   love.gif

Sarah, Angela B shared the idea of putting cardboard under her roosts and then just tossing those disposable poop boards. I actually used some newspaper. So each day I would take the newspaper and throw it out with all the poop on it. Just another idea.

chickenwrangler - So glad to see you!  I'm sorry for your difficulties and will be saying some prayers for you as well.  Please stop by often.

 

Mom - Thanks for posting the link for the fence!

 

Well, I'm off to the Food Pantry where I volunteer on Fridays.  It's cold and blustery out there today.  Yesterday was a 3 Dog Day, meaning I had three dogs appear at the back door COVERED in mud, so they all got a bath and blow out.  See everyone later tonight.  Take care.

Me too!  Absolutely lovely paintings!

 

Opa, I've only been here a short time but I love your morning posts.  I've been striving to approach life as optimistically as possible and you show me that that goal is absolutely within reach no matter what is going on.  Thank you and good luck with the lottery.
