i'm like 20 something pages behind. anyone want to give me the rundown? sooo...my rooster that we were going to eat but I couldn't because he is the sweetest thing ever, died. I think from wounds he received from an attack over 3 weeks ago. I'm pretty upset. I'd rather us eat him then him die a cruel wasteful death.
But on another note, put an ad out for some of the chicks I hatched....wow. everyone in the world is wanting to buy chicks. Too bad I only hatched 17 out of the 100+ I incubated. I'm kinda upset because I messaged the seller of the quail eggs. I told her I incubated them in 3 different incubators with eggs from all over and had eggs hatch from everyone except hers. None of hers even developed. She asked what I expected her to do. I told her that I am not allowed to expect anything but hope that she would kindly make a suggestion. I know its risky to hatch shipped eggs...but to have 0 of 30+ eggs even develop with that many incubators and that many eggs is ridiculous. Whatever...I don't need quail anyway. I'm in love with my singleton serama. And frankly so is DH. He wants more! holy cow..didn't think i'd hear the day that he wanted more chickens.
And...after my roo died, Butters my hen called and called for him and seemed pretty upset. Then suddenly, she's obsessed with my husband. Follows him, coos at him...WATCHED HIM FROM THE WINDOW! What the heck? I didn't know chickens did this. And he claims he hates them...well you better believe that butters gets more scraps then my dog, and suddenly my chicken scratch is disappearing at an alarming rate. I see him outside smoking and talking to the chickens. I have infected my husband with chicken love.
