  • My incubation experiment is in full swing. I'm turning the eggs by hand - good lord. Thank the Gods I only have 7 eggs to turn :) . Heat, which was kept quite low for the first few hours, is now at a balmy 97.5 F. Will candle the eggs on day five and see if anything is starting inside :)
    So it appears after stopping at 9 eggs, the conure eggs are all duds. I have two hens. **Golf cheer** AH well. It was good while it lasted. Now next on my list of things to do is get some quail eggs from Superstore and do my incubation experiment :) I have a shoddy incubator and I'm using eggs that may not hatch, but I figure what the hell. It'll be fun to try at least :)
    OMG... I have 8 conure eggs in the nestbox. EIGHT!!

    Poor guy! But glad he's got you to care for him! Do you have special perches for him, so he has an easier time getting around?

    I do have thicker perches for him to be able to rest easier. He likes them a lot. My female snuggles up next to him and gives him smooches…. totally adorable! When I have them out, he’s comfy on my shoulder or on a blanket on the floor. He flies very well, and I often have to retrieve him from the top of the china cabinet in the dining room!

    Awwww! That's adorable!
    Good evening! You say you're open about your faith in your "about me" section. Curious what your faith is, if you wouldn't mind explaining. Thanks!

    No problem! I've been a practicing non Wiccan Witch for about 26 years. I like to say I'm a witch with shamanic leanings :) My friends say I'm more of a Shaman, but I don't always feel like one.
    Ended up finding a rabbit cage on walmart.ca so I ended up buying that with paypal. Yaaaay! Now I have to wait 2 weeks for it and the quail feeder to arrive :) . Maybe this is what the universe was trying to have me get? WHo knows how the Creator works, LOL.
    I swear something is preventing me from upgrading the quails' enclosure. The sterilite container I ordered twice got cancelled twice and now the cage I'm wanting..... My funds never came in so I have to wait to purchase it. UGH. One problem I can live with. Two is annoying. Three is a conspiracy of the universe against me, LOL!
    Turns out it was just overall better re-ordering the enclosure rather than the cruddy guinea pig enclosures they had. Meh. Ah well. Also got myself a proper Hydrometer/temperature reader for the incubator in case the digital one sucks. :)
    Well, the enclosure I was planning to build for the quail is bust. The container was late and never showed and then walmart canceled the order. I might just end up doing a guinea pig cage :) Saves me the work!
