good morning, you are not alone TerriO, I was busy PM'ing someone otherwise we would have posted on top of each other, again..
I just got my first peek at the cockatiel baby.. Man,, it IS tiny.. It looks like a fuzzy yellow caterpillar.. about 3/4 inch long.. without a doubt,, the smallest bird I have ever seen..
I have guineas, barocks, and Delawares hatching.. I did not get them moved into the hatcher soon enough.. so all the incubator turners are stopped ..
I am going to transfer the older chicks in the brooder to one of the breeding pens, and then I will have enough room to put the new hatchlings..
I think I will stop collecting hatching eggs from the Dels.. I have a feeling I will be needing that pen soon for more chicks..
we had a nice soaking rain.. that was great for my newly planted potatoes.. now it can dry up for a few days if it wants to..
If I have time today, I think I want to go to the Amish greenhouse and get my plants while the selection is still good.. (and while I still have some of my allowance $$ left)..
Annie put the peahen into a hospital pen.. It was snuggled in the pines for the night,, too easy of a target for a pred..
I am thinking of getting rid of all my turkey hens.. I might keep just one for Tommy.. If it weren't for Ken, I would get rid of them all,,, Tommy, too..
The call duckling is doing better today. at least he is drinking and staying upright.. If he were a bit more mobile, I would let the geese raise him with their gosling..
