I took the neighbor kid "Miles" out fishing yesterday.... We caught a bunch of Bluegills and Crappie.... Enough to feed a large family... So it was good..... Although my motor a started and ran fine this time.... First trip out i had to pull start it.... But after spending three hours tearing the starter out and rebuilding it.... it worked great. I did however have to reload the boat as it was on the trailer all cockeyed the first try... Kind of half on half off..
Great pictures - what a lucky kid to have someone like you willing to take him out for a good day of fishing!
I'm sorry your hatch wasn't what you expected, Rachel. Doggone it! I had better luck with this batch of shipped hatching eggs from @RubyNala97 than I anticipated....9 out of 14 that went into lockdown hatched. Katie got to watch the last two and she was thrilled! I had to assist one (gulp) but she seems to be doing great, aside from one foot with curled toes.
Katie eyeball to eyeball with a brand new just hatched baby!
Look at her face!! She said, "Next time I see a bird or a chicken flying I'm gonna remember what hard work it is to get born!" We had 2 zipping at the same time, and they were racing to see which one would pop out first. The silver one beat the little yellow one by about 3 minutes....you can see that one zipped but still in the shell. She gave one mighty push and there she was - she didn't even zip the shell all the way around!
The crew...what I'm going to do with 8 Silkies is beyond me! We had 9, but we came home from Billings yesterday to find that one of the little yellow ones had died. I wasn't very surprised - it hatched with unabsorbed yolk and was looking kinda puny when we left.
Fabulous pictures - that smile says it all!!
