We are starting over after coyotes destroyed our flock on 3/5/10. We had six eggs left from our girls that had not been eaten or given away. So we have those in a bator. Expected hatch date: 3/28/10. They will be mixed from our Buff Orpington, RIR, Bantam Cochins, and PR hens which were covered with Roo Roo, pictured below, and Big Un, the little red bantam cochin roo who didn't survive either.
My first hatch, on January 26, 2010, brought the three lovely babies below into our home. And an addiction was born for me! (Hey, there are worse things to be addicted to!) Besides the six eggs from our girls who passed, we also have eggs on the way from kind folks here on BYC and so I should be adding lots of new baby pictures in the next month or so.
I am also an avid knitter, crocheter, sewer and spinner. I like all types of fiber art!! I home school, too! See my outside website @ Proverbs 31 Hands .I usually have lots of homemade items there, some needles, stitch markers, etc. Inventory is down due to my daughter's illness, but I am working on that now!
Check back for new hatch pics soon!
