    Not to change the subject but.......Anyone have Araucana eggs for sale??? My recent hatch of shipped eggs is not doing so well. Lost 8 right off the bat. Old eggs or infertile. Had 8 go to lockdown. 2 pipped at the wrong end and drowned very large deformed air cells and they missed pipping them [​IMG] [​IMG] PM me if you have any. Thanks

    Uggh...just a quick update on my first hatch (with shipped eggs also )...17 days ago, 2 of my 10 eggs hatched under a broody silkie mix...babies have been growing well and are hysterical...they were being kept in the outdoor coop with the other chickens but in a seperate dog kennel to make transition to the flock later easier...ive fended off the bigger girls when momma and her 2 babies have been free-ranging, and everything was going well...until yesterday's rains came...i was going to move the kennel into the garage but thought it was too tempting for my ex's dog since they babies are fluttering around...figured they'd be ok in the rain and would probably only get a little wet....well, i didnt check on them last night and went to work...stupid move...got home this morning to a soakingly cold and mad momma hen and one alive wet baby...from what it appears, the other baby (my NN/EE mix) was being kept warm under momma hen and drowned in the water that had accumulated in the crate [​IMG]
    There was no chance at revival when i found it...i feel like total jerk for not moving them yesterday...momma hen and my remaining baby (OE baby) took to me blow drying them well this morning...that and some organic mealworms i grow seem to have helped....ive since moved their kennel into my livingroom so they will NOT have such a tragedy happen again...funny thing is, the little chick that drowned was one i wasnt going to let hatch, but ended up incubating it anyways and helping the little guy out of its shell...to be honest, of the 2 chicks, this little guy was my favorite...way friendlier than the other...sigh...
