    Have fun Sydney :) I am going to hopefully finish my chickens coop before the bantams hatch :) Still got over 2 weeks, but chickens are growing at a massive rate and need more room :)

    I have a zoom lense. That way I can sit at a distance and catch them just being chooks. This pic is all thanks to a hawk coming into the garden. Chicken little said " quick kids hide."[​IMG]

    Aren't animals nutty sometimes. I am glad I am not the only one that has to chase their animals around to get a photo. My cat and dog are camera hogs, but the chickens, guinea pigs, canaries and king quail are afraid. I only have a small camera and I don't stick in their faces.

    I am a little sad this morning one of our female canary died over night. She was fine yesterday and was feeding her chicks. I had to foster out the chicks to another bird. I have a great little hen, that always lay infertile eggs, but she is a fantastic foster mother. She has saved numerous chicks, that otherwise would die or I would have to hand feed (I have done this a few times with limited success). They seem to do better with a mother bird.

    We are slowly collecting king quail eggs for my daughters incubator. We are now up to egg 7 and at this rate it is going to take for ever to fill the thing up. There is no one selling eggs for sale. I have looked everywhere, called numerous people and advertised. I know it's along shot, but if anyone knows of someone that might have some eggs they can sell, please let me know.

    Satay I loved you doggie pics. What sweet looking eyes.

    My RIR laid this tied dyed egg this morning. She is getting really creative and I might have to send her to art school.

    I thought the photo would show the colour difference more. Oh well!!! At least the egg didn't run away from me.

    Nice pics!!! Babies!!! I love babies. My camera has a zoom built in, but when they even see me with it from a distance they run in all directions to hide. They don't do that when I have the phone to my ear or carrying anything else. I seriously think they are afraid of it. I wish it would rain here, we really need it.

    Hope everyone had a nice long weekend. Mine was very busy. Just wanted to share.

    My araucana has laid me a nice blue egg every single day since she started laying (4 days ago)
    My Australorp X has also started laying. 2 large cream eggs over the last 2 days.
    My Red Sex-Link hasn't started yet, but I think she is very close.

    I bought some fertile eggs last week. The lady selling them had an over full incubator. I got 12 eggs at day 16. 9 blue eggs, 2 brown eggs, and a cream egg.
    I put them in my brand new incubator and then stressed about everything constantly XD

    Anyway.....

    Day 21 I got these 3 Beautys:

    Chick 2 - Blue Egg

    Chick 3 - Blue Egg

    And Day 22 I got these:

    Chick 6 - Blue Egg

    Chick 7 - Blue Egg

    Chick 8 - Brown Egg

    Chick 9 - Brown Egg

    [​IMG]

    Chick 10 - Blue Egg (Not sure if this little guy will be ok, it's very weak)

    I still have 2 eggs in incubator but I candled last night and could see no movement. Will give them another 24 hours though because this is the first time I've hatched and I am in no way experienced enough to be sure.

    Hope everyone enjoys the chick pics :D

    I have asked everywhere for you jellybean trying to find you some king quail eggs but i have had no luck so far. Think i might have to buy myself some as lots of people seem to be looking for eggs. I did manage to get my jap quails to lay just enough eggs to cover my order that had to leave this morning. So glad for that,
