I just thought it was so weird looking, and feeling.

"Rubber eggs" are so weird feeling aren't they?
Lovely pics, sorry been trying to keep up on here and it's near impossible lol. They are so weird feeling, and the moisture that leaks out of them makes it even weirder.

Well my day has been AWESOME, dropped the kiddo at preschool, went to the local mennonite discount grocery store and what do I hear next to me ...... another AUSTRALIAN voice!!!!!! I haven't heard another aussie voice up close and personal since I bumped into another aussie in Oklahoma lol I must have looked like a kid on christmas eve while I was talking to the lady! hahahahaha
My 6 girls are doing well, growing like weeds and come running to me everytime I go anywhere near their run outside - they constantly stalk me for treats lol
The 2 new RSL's I got are fairly quiet, very reserved and ever so slightly skittish still I am hoping they start to get a bit more welcoming when I finally get to put them outside with the rest of the girls. They are SOOO messy though, constantly knocking over their food, upturning their nesting box I put in for them - I think it is their way of saying they aren't happy to be in the garage They look fine, no lice, very clean, normal poop, no breathing issues that I have seen over the last week. Part of me wants to go put them in with the girls sooner but then my brain kicks in and says "nooooooooooo be patient" lol
Listen to the logic!!! lol

I love all the pictures of the baby chicks. We should have 3 hatching tomorrow or the next day and then 2 weeks left on the ones under our silkies. She kicked out 2 eggs so far. 10 left and I'm praying some hatch. I need to sneak in at night and candle.
I moved our 2 Easter Eggers and 1 serama in the grow out area with our cochin mix and d'uccle. We did it late last night. Today they seem to be getting along. Those of you who have seramas, do you let them free range? I've been letting the Cochin and d'uccle out and soon the Easter Eggers will be big enough. Pee Wee is still so tiny I'm afraid something will get her. Advice needed!
I'm waiting for a fart egg lol. I don't allow the seramas to free range, mostly because they haven't been truly introduced to the rest of the flock, and their size. They sure are spitfires though!! I have a feeling these little boys would try taking on an eagle to protect their lady or ladies. Ours go into a rabbit cage that we move around the yard that does not have a bottom and only when we're outside. I know of people who do allow them out and about, but I don't know if they are truly free ranging or if they just have a very large aviary. Next year I plan to have a fully enclosed run for the seramas, but I know I won't have the time to get that and their coop done before winter, which is why ours will be indoors this year. BTW how old is your serama?
