    Yup, they sure are not happy. They've been locked in b/c of the cold air coming in the coop.
    Trish was here today and loved that boy you sold me. I think she was drooling. She wants to get eggs from both of us and I would like to get some from you at some point.

    The Cochins have a home foe now. It has a temporary roof and door. I hope to finish that tomorrow.

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Ok, I jumped the gun, but I wasn't planning on doing the soonest hatch contest anyway.

    I set my eggs. I had to. I have a bantam Orp who is setting on eggs, and I have NOT been pulling the others out from under her, so I candled her eggs tonight. The ones that were about the same age (3) she was able to keep. The others I HAD to put in the incubator, so I decided to just put them all in at once. [​IMG]

    Off to sign up!

    Only 2 pages while I was out??!! A little less than 15 hours before the Eastern Time Zone sets eggs...

    Don't forget... I'll be posting my contest tomorrow as soon as I'm able - it'll be open for a week.
