Okay- so I got lucky and posted sold first on 12 blue Ameraucana eggs from Dipsy Doodle Doo. To avoid the shipping stress, and sneak in a road trip, I drove to get them. Excellent directions and a warm welcome to their chunk of heaven up there. Trust me, it's pretty wonderful. Critters everywhere!
The birds there are all beautiful, happy and healthy. She asked if I wanted to set some duck eggs, but I regretfully said no, no place to put them. She said put them with the chickens, in the same area. Nope, not enough space. Can't do it.
So, after I talked Lisa's ear off for 2 hours, she put the egg cartons in a box, and followed me to the truck. Got home a little while ago, brought in the box of eggs, and started checking to make sure they were all okay after the bumpy trip. 30 blue Ameraucana eggs, 12 Cuckoos.
They are all beautiful, ESPECIALLY THE 12 DUCK EGGS!
I've been snookered! Lisa knows darn well that they will go in the incubator tomorrow! But boy is she gonna be surprised when I show up at her house with a truckload of ROOSTERS!
I'm keeping the ducks.
Don't get all your exercise leaping to conclusions!
Poultry- they may be your pets, they may be your hobby, they may be your livestock. But remember, if you fall down in the pen, unconscious? They WILL eat you.
