    I moved the two Light Sussex from my New Year's Eve hatch out to the grow-out brooder in the coop today. The brooder in my office is empty now and sooooo lonely. Every once in a while I turn in my chair to screech "hello beebees" in a high pitched voice to make them shake their heads and there's nobody there. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    These eggs in the bator better a move on. Mama's gettin' crazy. [​IMG]

    OMG ... I was just thinkin' the same thing! My Christmas hatch is still in the garage, but they are going out this weekend. The Halloween hatch, when I put them out ... I sooooo missed them! I got into a habit of, "playing with them," each night after work (at midnight). I really enjoyed that time together! [​IMG]

    I dunno, maybe I will keep them in another week or so. Next hatch isn't due until Jan 28. [​IMG]
