    [​IMG] Morning.....or night....whatever it is where you are. 2:45am. I am dragging behind, tired this morning. I seem to be getting some sort of cold/sinus infection. Probably from stress and lack of sleep. Found out yesterday that on Sunday (which will be my 7th worked day) they put me down for a split shift. So I work only 8 hours, but will be there 7am-2pm then from 8pm-10pm. One hour lunch. Sunday sounds like a good day to call out sick!

    @Alaskan , super exciting about your new chicks[​IMG] We need pictures!

    Everyone have a great day! I gotta get coffee.

    Yes Al, pics!

    Minihorse, good luck with your hatch.

    Here, the heat wave continues. +4C at the moment, and a lovely sunshine.

    +4C is about 40F.

    Just snapped a few pics for you. The two light ones that might be pullets do have suspiciously large combs too, but the wattles are less developed than on the darker definite boys. And the color is a bit lighter too in the suspected pullets.

    Oh I also had to take my broody and put her onto her own cage. The other chocolate orps were deciding going broody was looking mighty good. Seperated them from her and they lose interest. I think they hear the chicks getting ready to hatch and they plan on robbing them from her. Stopped that scheme! She seems much happier now that she's being left alone. She should hatch tomorrow and friday!
