We are in the first of two ugly days here.
Wind is about 390 knots from the North ( give or take 4 knots) it is 19 degrees, which while warm normally is very chilly today.
I need to go see how the Black birds are doing with the turkeys. There were lots of pops and whistles last night when they first got together a few minor fights. I find it amazing birds that live together in peace for over a year have to fight and reposition themselves in the pecking order when they move to a new building/pen.
I do not think the effort required to incubate a shell-less egg would be worth it. As R2elk says moisture would be a pain. I have enough trouble with porous eggs let along a shell-less one.
I have to go check the hen I am going Gitmo on, see how she came through her first night of sleep deprivation. She was not a happy bird when she went in her little cage. SO basically I have all my birds pottied-off at me. She was so happy when I picked her up and carried her to the shed, she just sat in my arms and cooed and clucked. Made no attempt to leave.
Blackie did not go to Guinea gulag, if we were not in the "special" time of the year he might have. I think chicken bites are so funny. They really cannot hurt you by biting, but you know they are mad. If he had been smart he would have speared me with his beak. I did not have gloves on so it would have hurt. Dumb Bird.
