    I know Memorial Day just past, but let's not forget today is D-Day! [​IMG] Thanks to all those brave souls!!! [​IMG]

    On another note.....We are having our own war with Mr. Fox [​IMG] This past week Mr. Fox stole 6 of my hens now Goldie is doing her effort to restock the flock! Goldie refused to get off the nest one day so I just stuck 11 eggs under her. Well every time she got off the nest another hen would add to her collection until I found she had 17 under her, so we moved her and her nest into the growing coop where I knew that no more eggs would be added. Today is D-day they hatch!

    This morning with more to come! [​IMG]

    She's a "Black star" ......um, looks more like a gold star to me....at least she's earned one! [​IMG]

    I just checked up on her and so far we've got two yellow, three striped, and one black. There are ten more eggs under her, but I'm pretty sure that a couple of them aren't fertile.
