some swedish flower hen chicks incubating on my bathroom counter
easy - print more money
Lots of little bustards and big bustards in Australia-
most of them are in Canberra!
& that will work till the whole house of cards comes down on top of our heads
at that point there will be problems......BIG ONES
great chicks OZ
i'm heading down to cape cod on tuesday to pick up a splash BBS cockerel
the owner can't have roosters at her place
hope to have him taking over the breeding duties next year
having him will allow me not only get blue & black offspring but also the more rare splash too
take care OZ & goodnight mate
i have heard them too - they sound like farting chickens
(canberra is australia's equiv of DC)
this video cant embed, but here is the link
sounds like its worth a drive.
have a great weekend
Wonder if that sound could be bred into other breeds so us urbanite's could have quieter roosters. Much quieter than the standard call.
Pretty good looking bird.
an update on my SoCal hatch
5 swedish flower hen chicks out - one pipped wrong end and required assistance and is drying out. 2nd died doing the same.
1 buff brahma chick out
2 salmon faverolle eggs pipped
one bator lost power for .>5 hrs mid hatch so i expect them to be delayed 24 hrs
day 20 is over
now lets see if I can sleep with the chirping
Wow Its Saturday!
Hopefully people across America are collecting eggs, dating and labeling them in preparation for the bumpy USPS ride to Anaheim.
When I tell people what I carry to the Philippines, they always get a surprise and wonder how I can get it there.
These are trips home. I don’t need glamorous heavy luggage and I don’t want to carry the bags back empty. I use a great Filipino invention called the “Balikbayan Box” meaning returning home box. 18x18x24. That’s 60” the maximum allowed. I carry 3 as I get a bonus bag being a supa dupa frequent flier. Additionally I get a sports bag – thus the golf bag that can weigh 20KG. As I travel with upgrades to Business Class, my baggage allowance goes from 23KG (50lb) to 32KG (70lb) per bag. If you do the math, I have 255lb checked luggage allowance with 21 cubic feet just including the golf bag.
So whats on the manifest so far for this trip?
