thanks for the word. next time around it can only be better.
in retrospect, my first hatch in the Philippines, and all the hatches I have performed in the USA have been successful because I get the art and science of hatching. I exptected too much of others who were basically given a pile of eggs and told to go forth and hatch - like many people on this website will less of an understanding of the science no the art - and fail miserably. sure we had bad luck, but most luck is not really luck at all. I have learnt so much from this - not just for myself but how to teach Bernie. Bernie is amazing with the chicks, we just have to get him amazing with making chicks.

A month ago we sent an email to the Secretary for Social Welfare. It ignited a fire within the DSWD and today Mrs Oz was in Cavite - the region where we got our kids - having a case conference. There were lots of high level Social Welfare people there and clear timelines were set forth for their minions to complete their tasks. The requirements should be completed and in the courts for final decision by October and the courts will finalize the adoptions - with a bit of luck - by Christmas.
good to hear that you got those welfare people up & moving
knowing the PI someone was probably waiting for you to slip em a little "greese $$$"
don't worry about the silly eggs, my hens are kicking them out every single day
so you can get all you like.
