    Day 23

    5 days to the larger eggs begin to hatch.

    The chickens and coturnix are doing well.

    15 days till my next flight.

    34 days till a new clutch of coturnix hatch

    37 days for the chickens.

    I will separate the BLR Wyandottes when we get there so we can incubate some home grown purebred "merkans"

    we will throw 20 mutt merkan eggs in the incubator just to see what happens.

    the adventure continues

    Philippine Airlines plays episodes of wipeout on their domestic flights.

    Great mind numbing entertainment. I can imagine the chicken version. [​IMG]

    I received a text from Bernie...

    My father in law wants to know if its ok to put "a few" eggs in the incubator.

    This could be interesting.

    At least we will have a local control group earlier.
