Hi swappers things are getting picked up around here. Trees are gone from the driveway and the wood pile is huge. Roof and garage door back on barn. Brought home my 2wk olds today - I swear they have grown a bunch in 3 days. The little Polish is so hilariously funky looking with the crest coming in I just lover her.
I made a big mistake on dates this week, thought my eggs were supposed to hatch yesterday (Friday) but it is really today, so add 24 hours that electric was out and tomorrow is hatch day. I snuck one Polish out and candled, it is pipped internally and breathing
Beth - I have a question for you or anyone else that can answer. I hatched 3 EE pullets from you out of green eggs about 6 months ago. Will they lay a green egg without a doubt or could they be brown?
I have 4 or more new pullets laying and I'm unsure who it is (too busy to check the coop as much as normal). I have the EEs and 3 Brown Leghorns (white eggs) who are old enough but the eggs are creamy brown. The lady I bought my Buckeyes from said hers laid eggs at 4 1/2 months ~ I thought she was exaggerating ~ but these eggs sure look like Buckeye eggs and they are 4 1/2 -almost 5 months old If it is the Buckeyes WOW I love them more than before! And they start laying a couple of days after taking a wild ride in the coop flipping over!
