    The buggers are still hatching. My first delayed hatch! Colden Campins started overnight. I had one hatch this morning. To working on zipping. Fourth is probably a no go. I also have a Buff Brahma pipping. oy vay.

    I have sold the Swedish Flower Hens and the guy is picking them up in am. I have another who was buying the rest but suddenly has stopped messaging. You know how that goes. I may have to take you up!

    I have been doing a bit of reading on Blue Andalusians. They will certainly fit into my plans.

    As the taco bell dog would say "I think I need a bigger coop"

    Getting the Flock Out of Here II - The Mother Lode

    Its T-3 days until take off and the second phase of my crazy plan is upon us.

    This morning I received 8 emails with tracking numbers. Cloacae all over the United States of America have been depositing Calcium Carbonated embryos big end first into nests for the last few days. The owners of the owners of these Cloaca have been diligently collecting the eggs, storing them carefully, turning them appropriately and packaging them carefully. Today, they place them in the hands of people in sky blue and grey uniforms who will lob, pass, punt and dropkick them into the delivery system known as the USPS.

    May God have mercy on those embryos

    Hey Oz...Just had to pop in to say I am thinking of you. So happy that you get to make a quick trip home to see the family. The eggies and bators are a great plus, but I am sure you are super excited to see the fam. Best wishes and have a wonderful trip home.

    Thanks CR

    Getting to hug Mrs Oz and the kids will be the best part. You have no idea how much I miss them.

    My daughter is almost 3. She is so excited her Dad is coming home.

    The gang are heading to the farm today once Mrs Oz finished her final paper for the semester.

    They will come back to Bacolod on Friday to pick me up Saturday. [​IMG]
