Awesome news! Many folks blow out the 1st egg and save it, usually like a christmas ornament or other decoration.

Guys I have an Oberhasli goat doeling born May 25th that's ready to go to a new home. DD wanted to take her but with moving, marrying and new job isn't going to have time to raise her properly. Please PM if interested. Her mom Sugar is a very good milker, good mother and just exceptional personality. Both parents are onsite. Bocephus the father is a bit of a handful but for a buck, but quite friendly and social also. I do vaccinate for CDT annually.post #42533 of 499248/5/15 at 5:24am
We grew several new (to us) varieties of Heirloom tomatoes this year. I've come across several varieties that we like and several varieties that we wish had slightly different characteristics. You know what I mean...like our favorite cherry tomato, our favorite paste tomato, favorite eating tomato, canning tomato, drying tomato, etc.
This year I'm very excited to have finally found our favorite paste tomato! Just the right balance of number of tomatoes per plant, tolerates the conditions in my garden, size of tomatoes, seed to meat ratio, taste, etc.
The winner this year is HEIDI. Not sure who named this variety of tomato, but we finally have declared it our favorite paste tomato!
We also tried JERSEY DEVIL paste tomato this year, and it was a great tasting (and HUGE) paste tomato. The plants were a little less hardy and the number of tomatoes per plant were not as impressive as Heidi.
Here's the difference. This is what we picked in one night, from one plant...only talking about the paste tomatoes now. The pile of HEIDI tomatoes is on the left. On the right is the HUGE JERSEY DEVIL tomatoes.
The whole harvest for the evening. HEIDI, JERSEY DEVIL, BROAD RIPPLE CURRANT, BLACK CHERRY, GOLD MEDAL, RADIATOR CHARLIE, ANNA RUSSIAN, CHEROKEE PURPLE. Will be canning today!post #42534 of 499248/5/15 at 6:15amQuote:
Thats a great idea! Brett why don't we do that? Or we can have Glambka decorate it for us :)
Edited by Candy442 - 8/5/15 at 8:12ampost #42535 of 499248/5/15 at 6:55amGood morning everyone!! I was given brown eggs to hatch and were told they were Marans. They only have Marans and Ameraucana on their farm so it could be Marans or a mix. One hatched yesterday and another is coming out of its shell as we speak. They both have fat feet with shorter toes and both have 5 toes on each foot. I tried to research and did not find where either breed had 5 toes. So without any other knowledge of how long they have been hatching/breeding from the same group of chickens, would this be something that is from inbreeding? They are going to be used for eggs and eventually meat so an extra toe is fine for now. However, down the road I would like to hatch my own chicks, bring in a couple others from somewhere else so I'm not having the same chickens breed. Am I correct in thinking that these chickens will carry the gene to have five toes which is not normal. Any knowledge is greatly appreciated.post #42536 of 499248/5/15 at 6:56ampost #42537 of 499248/5/15 at 7:19amQuote:Originally Posted by jenaman

Here are some pics.post #42538 of 499248/5/15 at 8:53am
Marans have some issues with a short outer toe but not 5 toes. The yellow feet and yellow down on the one chick as well. Not Ameracauna cross either unless theirs are crosses also. Sorry.post #42539 of 499248/5/15 at 9:01amDid you see the parent stock or get picks? What color are the eggs you hatched?
Oh and what type of Marans are they supposed to be?
Their feet should have some slate color and can be a tinge yellowish but are more pink but only as chicks. Grown will be slate&pink.
Thsee are mine pictured below.

So far behind on everything in life right now, including this forum. Since I have not been able to get on here in a long time I don't know if anyone already posted this info, but it is really important for everyone to know. This info came out July 9. Here is a link to the whole document, http://www.in.gov/boah/files/Modified_Ban_July_10-15_AnH_Advy.pdf but this is the critical info for anyone who sells any kind of poultry in case you did not see it:
New Traceability Rules for Poultry Beginning
Sept. 17, 2015,poultry species will be subject to Indiana’s traceability requirements, like other livestock species. This requirement is a permanent requirement to Indiana law.
Anyone who buys, sells, leases, barters or exchanges poultry within Indiana must maintain a record of the transaction for 3 years. (This requirement is similar to other livestock species.) The following information must be recorded:
Number and breed of poultry;
Any individual animal identification present on the poultry;
Name and address of the seller, lessor or owner; and
Name and address of the purchaser, lessee or recipient.
Individuals do not have to maintain records of sales directly to an approved slaughter facility or through an approved livestock facility, because these facilities are required to collect that information. More information about HPAI and Indiana’s bird movement requirements (including importation standards) is online at: www.boah.in.gov.
