Hmm, I happen to have some chicks hatching in a few days...and have a couple of really cute ducklings too...think I found somewhere for some of my babies to go and I'll still get to see them grow up. yesss.gif Then I won't be that weird chicken lady, we'll be that weird chicken street, lol. Especially since hubbies friends down the block just got a couple of chickens last week too.

Then I'm that crazy duck girl who doesn't clothe her children because she's too busy messing with those ducks.  Ya know how people are.

 

And I'm sure they're not thinking that... but still. 



Actually, I have more ducks than chickens, so probably should be the weird duck lady. The ducks just stay in the back yard, while the chickens and turkey hang out by the birdfeeder at the front gate or sit at the front door. And too funny about the 3 yr old. I don't feel so bad now. My 7 year old had no problem staying clothed, maybe it's a middle child thing. lol.png

Pip for it.  You will regret it if you don't.   Do you have an exacto knife/razor blade?  You can make an X with it and then use tweezers to get the shell started and it won't break the membrane this way.. if you're careful.  Since it's a delicate situation. 

Awesome!!!  Sometimes I feel like that weird chicken/duck lady.  People don't "get it".


 




But you pen them up at night right?  That's what's confusing me.
No, I dont. Their in a 2 acre pen. We have daddy dog protecting them.

QJ, excellent tip.  I just checked SA egg.  It has internally pipped, so since I will have to open hatcher to move SA over, I guess I will attempt to pip the other egg. But it is already fading fast. I really doubt I can help it at this point.

My menagerie includes 5 horses, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 29 geese (mostly dewlap toulouse & african) and 15 assorted breed ducks.

Keep the faith sista.  Check back when you're done.
