    As some of you know I lost all the birds I hatched over the last month due to a predator this week. It was just devastating. I have jersey Giants from maria hall pipping today, so far just one but it's been a little quiet around here and glad I have more babies coming. Dh built me a predator proof brooder similar to one he saw on the internet and it is drying from stain from last night so my babies have a safe place to live for the first month of so.

    I'm sorry to hear about your birds [​IMG] but good luck with the hatch and hooray for dh building you a stronger brooder.
