Wisconsin "Cheeseheads" - Page 1961

post #19601 of 49809
Evening! Looks like everyone has been keeping busy... Kids are on spring break this week and we have been working on getting another unit ready...this one needed a paint job and some elbow grease for cleaning- especially the stove, not sure why the stove is so hard to keep clean roll.png

Hopefully we don't get to chilly as our apple, pear and cherry tress are blooming, still watching the one and hoping that it survived the winter!

Mazojoe- we have extra cockerals that are welsummers and are about 3 months old now- not sure how old you are thinking about or if you want older?

Our Crew: 2 human adults, 3 human kids, 1 Aussie,1 Cocker, Californian and French Angora rabbits,  Andalusians,  Welsummers,  Cuckoo Marans, IB and White Peafowl,

Yes, run, Bigfam. Hurry. In your robe and bunny slippers, skipping all the way, whistling your happy goat tune.  lau.gif

I sold (well kinda) this guy! No, he's not a Del... have no clue where the markings came fromhu.gif

I traded him for an Easter Egger Hen. Works for me! Works for him too he gets 12 hens all to himself! LOL And his new owner loves to hear a rooster's crow.

 

This guy I'm thinking about keeping... Or to a good home. I at least want to get a few chicks sired by him.

This is the 4th night in a row I've had chicks hatching! I need sleep. They are so loud, why can't they do it during the day?

I've hatched and raised many chicks and they're fine out of the incubator. But when they first hatch and peep like crazy i can't handle it.

You must have had someone babysitting your incubator BBP.

 

I had set eggs on March 16 th so they should be hatching in a few days.

 

Storkey is adorable!!! love.gif  And so are those roos cindlady!

 

If you wash the stove right after you use it it is easy to clean. roll.png

Just popped in to say goodnight!  NJ--dont be silly, if one of those roos trips your trigger just let me know!  That's where they are headed anyhow...if they get to have some fun for a year then that makes me happy.

On a sad note...I went out to lock up and found one of my Blue Ameracaunas dead on the nest!  I was wondering why it looked so crowded in there today...She looked like she was asleep!  It was one of the good hens too...not the one without the tail. No injuries, didnt feel egg bound; maybe she just had a heart attack or something.  Chickens puzzle me more and more!

Good night and sweet dreams!  TErri O

CC...Storkey was the only yellow chick Jim brought to the bash so I took her.... turns out shes a Thai fowl. She's normally a bit flighty, and for a long time she thought she was one of the guineas!

Since she's gone broody I've been petting her and talking to her every day. She's been real good. Hoping she won't freak when I want to see the chicks. Problem is she wants to get so deep in the nest she winds up spreading it out!
