    So sad day. My husband was "helping" me put the eggs in the 'bator, and bumped my arm as I was picking up one of the D'uccle eggs. And of course it was too broke to "fix". So we decided to check for fertility. And it was fertile. So one gone from the little eggs, put the marans egg in the bator for now. deciding if I want to keep it or not. It is by it's lonesome in a corner. I've made sure no eggs are in the surrounding few spots. So out of 36: 1 an early goner because of a stupid accident, and 1 possible before arrival. Oh well, such is life.

    Sorry to hear that. Eggs are eggs...they break, no matter how careful we try to be.

    Love it! Thank you. It was day full of family and fun. Also got 22 birds bled and cooked down lots of tomatoes for sauce. Best birthday ever! Sally, would you travel to Ephrata? I got a guy there who processes my birds $1.40/each, let me know if you're interested. He processes on Tuesdays and you need an appointment before hand, I'm happy to pass on the info.

    uggggg I was hoping they would work!! I would hate to waste so much in skinning so many, there are 26 cornish X and at least 3 CCL roosters, 4 CCL hens. I have a bunch of serama that would be ok to skin. Its was not much fuss raising these meaties at all, I thought they would be really gross and stuff from what everyone was saying but I can easily see us doing more than this once a year so it may be best for us to invest in a plucker, I wish we could rent one somewhere though! wouldnt it be nice if TSC rented them! I dont have the room to store one either! but I guess I could MAKE more room!

    awwwww I have dropped eggs at lockdown stinks

    hey wasnt there supposed to be a big meteorite hitting earth this month killing us all or something? wasnt it ummmm TODAY? SEPT 24th?????

    you are RIGHT!!!
    LOVE your avy!! is that Mr. Sexy Sam?
    Of Course FB did LOL, but I will take credit!!

    wow you had a very busy day girl! Thats fairly far, I just found a guy in Myerstown, menonite of course, he called me back and I was in the shower, will try to call them again to see their prices. If not thank you for another option. I have to find that link to the video on the processing thread on how to quarter the birds again, I forget how if I do it myself!
