    I think wolftracks (Kim) on the California (Not Northern) thread has some. She is in Modesto. Not sure what color hers are though.

    I seem to have got it dialed in so hoping
    awe thanks.
    You may have a vole as well
    lol I need not mean to offend your incubator.
    I finally got the new wafer dialed in thank goodness
    so how big is that? I assume 2x2 means to incubating trays and two hatching trays.
    It looks like one of those mini beer fridges
    nice hairdo
    Judi you are welcome to stop by. what part do you live?
    I am off sly park rd 1 mile down from Sierra springs

    I have a broody EE that's been sitting on 5 of my silkie eggs for 2 weeks now. She was broody and I figured I've got these fertile eggs just sitting here -so good timing! They should hatch next Friday.
    Wellllllllll, the problem is that I don't trust her as a first time Momma, especially to my silkie babies. I had planned to separate them and hand raise the babies anyway (eventually adding them to my silkie pens). Would it be too terrible for her if I stuck her in a broody-breaker and hatched the chicks in one of my incubators? [​IMG] I don't want to traumatize her for the rest of her chicken life but maybe chickens really don't care?

    I was wondering the same thing. I have a broody Silkie sitting on 6 eggs, and I have more eggs in my incubator. When they hatch I want to put all the chicks together in the brooder, but I don't to traumatize the Mama.

    Great picture.. too cute!
    Chickens have very short term memories. If you don't mind breaking a chicken of broody then she will soon forget if you can break her. If you can't ... some keep trying until they have chicks. Each bird is different. But they will forgive you if you feed them mealworms...[​IMG]

    Kim, those baby Delawares! too much cuteness!!!!

    sad to report my first predator loss here: one of the light sussex girls must have been busy dustbathing or something when i put them away last night (i'd had a rather hideous day at work and was undoubtedly not paying attention like i should), as today there are a lot of white feathers scattered along a trail of trampled-down trail into the meadow grass... and then nothing. poor girl. (although now i have a better sense of just how effectively predator-proof the coop is!)
