    Yep, we use those like crazy... then toss them in the 'used' pile and let the rain and sun do there thing til we go back around to 'em...



    Movement?? That's very odd...

    Oh, let me clarify what I was meaning... Fri turn off turn and lay down like you would for hatch, but wait til Sun to up humidity... this way they aren't turning while trying to get into hatch position and you still give a couple more days to let the air cells grow...



    So, crow is on the menu in a couple days?? :lau

    I wish I could stockpile some supplies. DH likes things "organized " so I have to keep limited stuff in the coop because it is my area.

    Not sure I could stash a pallet of bricks though. (You must still be so sore Ravyn)

    My OH complained once, when our neighbor redid their deck and I hauled home all the used railing spindles, 4x4's, and 2x4's they were gonna toss out... then we built more coops and we used up ever single bit of it... now he brings home more chit than I do... :gig

    Yeah, still very sore... :hugs

    I took the chit end of that and was in the back of the pickup moving and stacking them evenly... and unloaded same way... :/

    Ok, that sounds like a good plan. I had so few clears, I think even when I take out the rails, its still going to be tight to lay them all down. I figure I'll have to leave part of them standing up, (leaning against the wall) whichever ones air cells look least, probably the silkie eggs.

    And yes, that duck is moving for sure. That one, and one other are a little higher weight loss, but all in decent range. Get this... Since I only have the one female, and I dated the eggs, this one is dated 11/14. That was a Saturday, so I did not collect it until that Sunday, so it spent a whole day outside. I'm going to look up what the weather was that day, just for curiosity.

    We had a friend who's grandmother had a swimming pool, with brick all around it. Those odd shaped bricks that interlock. She wanted concrete poured, so long story short(er), we ended up with the brick. A dump truck full! I've done so much with them, and still doesn't look like I've dented the pile where they were dumped! Back breaking work though.

    Oh yea, I knew what you meant. And one other thing, this one has the most sloped air cell, but I figured that was because of not being stored fat end up for the first day.

    Great pic!! I love chicks!!

    Yes! @WVduckchick I forgot to mention not turning, I've been stopping turning around day 16 and I didn't even think to say that! Stop turning and be set for hatch, but up humidity when you get back! Sounds like a good plan, Ravyn, that's what I was thinking too.
