nine Turkey eggs are due Thursday!!! Hoping for at least a few poults i
As far as friendship goes, you my friend are one of the main reasons this project even got off the ground. If our paths never crossed, I probably would have 11 mixed chickens in my backyard.
I hope so too.
We candled the top shelf last night in the Phils. The turkeys did not look good at day 8 nut we will give them another week.
The khaki campbell ducks I got from the lady in lake elsinore that i got my other mutt eggs from on trip one look ok. 13/19 veining. The creme legbars are 7/11, 7/11 and 10/18. 4/7 of Jills Swedish Flower Hens and 3/4 rhodebars. The banties are not complete but we have 33/36 banty cochin eggs that were shipped veining so it looks like we may end up with a flock of broody machines.
There are also 6/9 of sunnysideupmicrofarms banty chocolate orps doing well. 3 were extras so I am crossing fingers we will get a couple of roos to cross with my Brittish Black Orps. It could be fun to have a LF chocolate orp project pen going.
The Guineas are doing great but they seem to survive shipping the best of all breeds 24/28
I will get the results of the second shelf at around 5am Anaheim time
