Hi all. Just got up from a nice nap. I haven't seen anymore from her, but I don't have high hopes. My best bet would be on the coyote. Eagles are extremely rare; we have a river on the property but I just don't think we have the right habitat. I've seen them easy of here circling over the crawfish fields, but that's only been once in five years.
Maybe she'll be waiting to come back in this evening. For weeks I've been running outside everytime I hear the egg song, trying to find the hidden nest. I can't try to just stalk them tomorrow... If she's really gone, then that drops me down to three hens, one being broody. I won't be able to sell eggs from just two layers.[/quo
Camping put some eggs in bator now. You will have hens ready to lay in April. You are like me we live where we can raise them in the winter. Last October 31 i got 13 baby chicks for my birthday from my husband 8 were BRs. Just what I wanted to bred my lemon bars. Also got a BO roo also needed for the cross. I am waiting on my 5 cockeriels to get their adult feathers to decide who gets to mate the BRs to produce the lemon bars. Anyway enough about my genetics project. Remeber I was a biology teacher for 32 years.
I was planning to hatch in December, then I remembered it's our Christmas in Iowa. So then I considered November, but who would care for them over Christmas? I think I'm going to have to be responsible and just put everything on hold for a year.
I was wanting a new bloodline, but not ready to pay that much. But I guess maybe by spring I'll be ready for that...
My broody is setting on sussex eggs. I was going to sell her chicks and replace them with diff breeds I've been wanting, but maybe not I'll let her raise them. It's just so hard to know anything about chickens.
How exciting Jane ! I always want to play with the genes but I of course have no idea . wondering if i cross this with that will i strike gold, ect...
