I don't have time to keep up with that thread. I'm too busy with the ones I love, love, love talking on!!!
Oh, and looking in the auction.
So today I'm looking at my blue calico Catdance silkie boy and I'm thinking he might look really great with a porcelain girl. His wingtips have a wheaten color to them and he has almost like a wheaten color to his hackles. Sooooo, I'm looking around on the poultry auction sites just waiting for my porcelain girl to pop up......oh, wait, I need a porcelain for my blue/porcelain Catdance roo too......need more than one girl.
And then I'm messing around over in the auction and what do I find Catdance had put up a BIN for 12+ porcelain/lavendar and 12+ blue/splash.
So EVERYONE knows I have been saying I need a beautiful splash boy. I have a nice splash girl - although I admit Catdance is out of her league, but she can step it up - and I have blue chicks in my garage that are from Catdance parents. So I hurried up and bought the porcelain. In the 30 seconds it takes me to buy them, someone has snatched up the black/paint for $85. Wow, I wish I had eggs like that! So I just know the splash are going to go quickly. This auction is perfect for me, right??????
SO I BOUGHT BOTH SETS. It's all fine and dandy except I don't know how to hatch these little buggers out. I'm sitting here asking the kids what should I do? What do you think dad would tell me to do right now. So my kids - got to love them - said dad would tell you to do what you want to do!!!!!!!!
Dad, by the way, is sleeping. He would probably actually say the same thing he said when I wanted to buy eggs last weekend when we were picking up chickens. Honey, I really don't want you to buy eggs until you know how to hatch.
Maybe my brain didn't register his request right. Maybe I thought he said- Honey, I really want you to buy eggs so you can learn how to hatch. Because Tuesday I bought some from somebody in Texas and tonight I bought these.
Of course, I reasoned it out they must surely have been meant for me since that is exactly what I was looking for today.
I think I will go to Tractor Supply tomorrow and buy myself an LG. Does anyone have an opinion if I would have a chance to successfully incubate in it?
If next Monday comes and I kill all the chicks again I don't know what I'm going to do.
I told myself not to be over there in that egg section.
I should have stuck to that $5 banty auction I was looking at!
I'm bad......I'm going to try to go to sleep now. I don't think I will be able to rest thinking of 24+ Catdance babies popping out of shells.
P.S. Did I tell anybody that I'm really excited right now!
