Just checking in--our eggs form Mille are in lockdown now, and we're hoping for a hatch on Sunday or Monday!!  Can't wait to see what we'll get!!

 

Great weight on this last bird of your, too, Moby!

 

 

Icelandic sheep, their Guard llamas, Scottish Deerhounds, Barnevelder and assorted chickens, one lovely cat, and soon, Quail!!

They're hatching!  They started yesterday with about 7, and this morning there were about 30--there were 70 eggs, so we're hoping for lots more to hatch.  We'll see--we weighed two of them -- 10 grams and 12 grams.  28 were in the brooder when I was there this morning.  We'll let you know what else we get!!  They're gorgeous little babies!!
