When's the last time you even shut the incubator off??
We last turned them off 3 years ago.. But I have what I need already just a few more for spring from certian matings and and waiting for the next generation. I figure a few hundred more Rosecombs, 100 more Birchen OE, 100 More columbian oe, and a few other birds here and there. Taking a break through the heat so the birds can grow better.
How exactly does one care for that many hatchlings?? I'm such a lightweight!

Not sure how that happened. Been seriously wanting both. Only two of my chickens are laying right now so I still only have two chickens, no matter what hubby says.
Husbands can't count, don't let it bother you. Just pat him on the head and say, "Yes,dear." We know you don't have enough chickens.

Picked these four heads of broccolli this morning. Best we have ever grown. And a picture of the canned poke from yesterday. Still need to wipe down the jars, remove the rims and label the jar tops.
Got to go feed and water now.
We have soccor games with granddaughter today too. A relaxing day after yesterday's long hours.
Your kitchen and cannings are just a work of art. Sigh. I always wanted my kitchen to look like that. It just isn't ever going to happen.
The broccoli I love.....the poke? Not sure but it does look like spinach. When I was a kid I wanted a can of spinach because Popeye ate it and made it look good. OMG. It was horrible! My mom made me finish what was on my plate. Popeye sucks and ruined many a dinner for little kids :-/
Oh yea!!!!!! I have 2 Silver Laced Cochin eggs in lock down from the Newcastle auction and one of them is pipped!!!! I sure hope they're really Cochins!
