Two more chicks hatched! The butterscotch colored one yesterday, and the silver colored chipmunk this morning! I'm glad I've been checking so often, the "mamas" had this latest one pushed completely out of the nest. It was cold and wet when I found it, but dry and toasty and chirping now with the others. I don't have an incubator or I'd have taken all the eggs
from them. I think the other eggs still have another week or so to go.
Something got 6 out of 7 chicks that my 3 broodies were sharing. The one left, a CCL ROOSTER.
It was not a good morning this morning.
I have more eggs going into lockdown in a couple of days so I might slip some of those into the broody nest tonight as I know they want chicks.
I am so sorry to hear. Really frustrating!
I am fighting with possum and raccoon right now, trapping nightly. My neighbor had them climbing on his coop before dark, trying to get at his birds.
What about chicken fest? Are we still on?
