tweety, what a nice setup, great job, I'll bet your birds love it! That is a really nice generational picture, what a cute granddaughter you have!
Hawkeye, how about you get some other kind of eggs besides Silkies & try those in your bator, then you would know if it was just them or not?
Pikeman, I'm glad you found your hen.
Taz & IVY, guess what, we have baby chickies today! DH & I went to bed late because we were trying to get things back in place after my painting episode last night, so we were dead to the world. All of the sudden we were both awakened by the loudest peeping from downstairs in the kitchen where the incubators are sitting on the breakfast bar. Of course we both jumped out of bed, yes even my DH went down with me & lo & behold there were two little Ameraucana chicks just hatched. Here is a pic of them:
Hey IVY, if you're around what color do you think these will be? I'm hoping they're Lavender, but I don't know what they look like just hatched. These two are a couple of days early, they're not really due until Sat. I saw one other egg trying to start to pip, but it's an EE egg.
rvroman, one of these is yours! Keena says if you end up with a rooster she will trade you for a hen because she's wanting a rooster.
Hawkeye, Here are pics of the furniture that came at 7:45 this morning:
The couch is kind of a sectional thing, you could buy as many pieces as you wanted. I still don't think my DH got it together quite right, I may have to wait until my son comes again to muscle it around.
And here are the recliners, probably where we'll be be a lot of the time when we're in there. They're electric because with my knees being so bad I can't push the manual ones back. I didn't even know they made such a thing until we started looking at furniture. They lay all the way down so you ultimately could sleep in them. I sure wish I would have had these when I had my rotator cuff surgery on my shoulder. I couldn't sleep laying down, it hurt too much & I still have to sleep with that arm up on a pillow after 2 years.
Anyway, that's the news from my house today, I'm pooped out, I feel like a mack truck ran over me after painting like an idiot trying to get it done last night & then getting very little sleep. I have to run & get feed for the little chickies now because I don't have any, I wasn't expecting them until maybe tomorrow. I hope some more start hatching soon so these have some company. I put the eggs in the incubator today that I got in the mail, so we'll see how they do. They had packed them in individual bubble wraps & then they all rode in a big box of foam peanuts. These came all the way from California in 3 days, the turkey eggs were from KS & they came in one day.
