The little cream legbar egg that I had to wash because it was covered in dried yolk from a broken egg, and then I shoved my thumbnail through it, is doing great! I patched it with packing tape because it had an actual hole instead of a crack. I cut some of the tape away because Kelly didn't think it could zip! These 3 are due to hatch Thursday but I think one Icelandic will be early.
Our turkeys didn't come in today and I am a nervous wreck about it! I hope they get here nice and early in the morning so I can lay some love on them! 16 Sweetgrass were shipped.
I know, but its just very cool to see different colors that a Icelandic pair can throw, unlike say, Buff Orpingtons....
I am waiting for my order of turkeys to come this week too!! Bourbon Reds!
On Sunday, I have culled almost all of my flock. Sold them as meat birds. I have over 300 eggs saved, some of them are Icelandics. But most of the Icelandic eggs are Johanna's, the other two did not lay well.
I had initialed the Icelandic eggs to which hen laid them, for I had 1 hen with 1 roo in each pen.
