I got word yesterday that my sitter said he woke to 2 of my new hatches dead which i find strange and worried but nothing i can do from here. ; (
I left 4 newly hatched silkies and 2 guinea chicks at home. So not sure which it was.
Agreed, I use fencing wire, and wire it to a solid object so there is no chance of the light falling.
Oh my, DH just shakes his head. I am still peering into the incubators after lockdown, and staring over the brooders. It just never goes away, you get so hooked.
Oh no, am so sorry.
I would love to see the animals too! Thats my favorite part of any vacation.
Thats awesome! I would love to do this in my coops, someday.
First Bourbon Red turkey egg today~and another peafowl egg! I set 90 eggs again, ugh. starting to set on tuesdays next week. I also had a glitch on my wait list and am rebuilding it. Going off my inbox messages, but if you see the post, please remind me also!
Yes, but only until I have enough peachicks I know will get good homes. I may keep a couple for myself too They aren't a bird just anyone can keep for sure. My neighbors run out of their house to hear the cock calling, ROFL they just love it! They want a pair too now.
Oh and meant to add, Its like turkeys as far as fertility I think. I know usually the first week or so of eggs won't be fertile. The two species are very similar in so many ways!
