Aurora I love them!!
JJ is the godfather of my Birds, Ethel is the godmother and that was reinforced today. Remember I said I picked Ethel off the roost. Well, that was a bad move it ticked her off.
When I went back outside she was back up there. She looked down at me and gave me a dirty look that said "You better leave me up here, Bellybutton!"
Of course I did. I checked for eggs no eggs in the layers.
I then went to Bert Junior's girls. One egg in the nest! BTW those CX's lay huge eggs. They are averaging 2.35 ounces! I now have 4 toads to go into the incubator..
I put the CX egg into the carton and went to check the Creamettes. All the Creamettes were on the roosts. There were two shiny diamond encrusted eggs in the nest boxes. I picked them up and placed them in the carton but had not closed it yet..
I have a double man door on the creamette coops so they cannot esc ape to the outside. I failed to close the outside man door. My pup decided to see what was going in inside the coop and pushed the second door open with her nose. We all know what meek mild sweet demeanors the Creamettes have. This was enough to cause one to fly off the roost. Claws first into my face, then slide down my face drawing blood the whole way.
It then flew into my hand knocking the two diamond encrusted eggs to the floor cracking them into little pieces. She then flew back up to her roost. I was sure I heard her say " that is from Ethel"....
I am now afraid to go into the coops.
When I got into the house, my DW asked me what happened to me, when I told her I was attacked by a creamette she laughed at me. But she did dab the blood off my face.
Remember when R2elk tried to teach us how to sex turkeys.. and some of us (me) failed miserably. It appears I did it all wrong, here is a video on how to do it.
It looks so easy even I could do it.
It says it works with chicks too, So I am going to try it. Maybe a week apart to see if I get the same results.
JJ is going flying with me, maybe Ethel..
