Busy busy for sure!
Cleaned up some of the tree mess Sunday.
Pulled 2 of the turkey eggs after candling Tuesday, leaves me with 5 turkey and 7 duck eggs due in a week or so.
My broody silkies (2), had 20 eggs under them, sharing a box. The chicks began hatching which was staggered from while on vaca but after the 4th hatched (1 black silkie, 1 blue silkie and 2 from the frizzled) i took the remaining eggs, candled, only 6 were developed of those. Strange. 1 already internally pipped.
Shocked to get a call from the post office this morning and received 26 chicks from Whitmore farms. 13 blue & splash Ameraucana and 13 Black Copper Marans. Not too many with good feathered shanks which really is disappointing! My boys have great shanks so depending on egg color they may stay.
Then ive been noticing one of my turkey hens coming from the woods alone a few days now. Once i saw she wasn't with the others earlier I went on the hunt.
Well i found remains of eaten eggs, and not too far there she was all nestled in under a briar bush.
She's been sleeping with the others so i know she hasn't gone broody which I'm sure could be due to her eggs disappearing.
No duck eggs or pea eggs that I'm aware of yet.
LOL I remember last year finding egg stashes everywhere, ugh. You are buried in babies for sure! My DD came and got her chicks and I had more leave today. And just locked down about 50 chicken eggs!
Love your egg color, niced sized eggs too!
