Ahh a conservatory would be lovely....
Sure be glad when this project gets issued.
sounds amazing!...I need a bigger house! When I lived in Florida, I lived in new construction, 3x the size of my current house for $300 LESS a month! I still don't know why my husband wanted to move!!
I hate to ask this, but since I don't have any interest in breeding Am's, I haven't really done any research on them, so you guys are my library. My question is.... what's the easiest "dead giveaway" that its not a true Am??
We down-sized big time when we moved this last time. Well, this "house" is much smaller. Everything else, land, garages, out-buildings, etc greatly expanded!! And I didn't even know chickens and ducks would take over my life at that point!
Hey Brat, you know I aint gonna smak ya for leaving me like ma puce does on my thread when his um "minions" leave his yard and go wonderin around.. so here's a hug instead

He was a gentleman right up until he hopped into his cone, not easy on them big ones, they hit me the hardest. But whats gotta be done needs done when its time. But he went down easy with his brother and fed the family.
howdy WV, how's them eggs?
Good Morning BertS
Ok, hatch update... hatch is over. Bator is turned off.
After the one duck hatched yesterday, I had 3 that still looked promising. I let the earliest one go to 48 hours from pip, checked on it... DIS.
Next one was at 36 hours, so before I went to bed, I checked it, and opened it up a bit, made sure the bill was clear. Saw a few active blood vessels. Next one was around 24 hours, so I just made sure the pip hole was clear and moist. Got up at 3 am, still same status, helped the other one a bit more. The membrane was really dry and holding him in. So I moistened it up, as I was telling myself that I should have left it alone! Got up at 5 am and both were out!!! YEAH! I'm not sure if the one I helped really needed my help, and I thought it was going to need culled...its neck was kinda twisted and it wasn't moving one leg. Within an hour it was fine and running about the bator.
Checked the rest of the eggs, all DIS. I think the humidity was too low for the ducks, but great for the chicks, so I don't think I'll hatch them together any more. I'm also wondering if the delayed humidity raising was partially to blame, but I'm still happy with the results.
3 pretty little duckies...
This is the one I assisted.
Good morning everyone! Had a response to the Minion comment, but thought better erase it.
WV - as s screening for AMs, I look at color (BBS, Wheaten:Blur Wheaten mostly) beard & muffs, comb(pea), leg color (slate, no yellow). Any mixed feather color is usually the first giveaway., since the other colors Silver, Lav, Buff, etc are more rare.)
