    Rancher gave me a memory today. about 30 yrs. ago i bought my first house and moved in next to my mom and step . there was a big tree trunk in their yard and we were sitting on the back porch drinking coffee when my step explained the bees to me. he said he had seen them going in and out of under that trunk for a long time and there was a big store of honey under it. He said he wished he were not so old that he could dig it up because honey from under ground was the best in the world. Feeling sorry for him and wanting a taste of the best honey in the world i grabbed my shovel and went to work. this went for 3 days of me sweating and hurting for that honey. I was out working and heard my mom yelling at him. she was pretty mad by the sound of it. so he comes out and tells me they must be gone and had me stop digging. It was yrs. later when they told me what the fight was about. There were no bees and never had been but i got that stump out of the ground for him. [​IMG] my Tom Sawyer moment.

    morning , I did a fast look see at the eggs last night. too early but not looking good to me. found another one cracked, tons of saddle shaped air cells. the cracked one had an air cell that moved as i moved the egg so detached right? I didnt check them all and didnt pick them up , just skipped through them. I did see a couple with a black dot but no veining as of yet. they went in on the 10th.

    another brain fart, @ Twisted, if the ads are the problem , and i think they are. You can pay to become a golden feather member and the ads are gone. I believe its 12 for 6 months or 20 for a yr. My computer starts talking ads out of the blue sometimes.

    Graphic Text : This is probably the worst post i have ever made but , Sometimes i just cant help myself. My husband is watching kick boxing already this AM. he is always watching it. Someone cut a big one [​IMG] and i asked him, Did you hear the dog barking ? he said No, but his breath stinks.

    They're good. The puny one perked up like the others. Guess it just needed time to recover from hatching. They're funny little things, they just stand around looking at each other. Not like the last ones who were born hungry, and never stopped eating. I put a teddy bear in with them and they all scoot under it to sleep. It's precious.

    aww, they are waiting for mama to show them what to do. put your finger in the food dish and "peck" with it. I cup my hand upside down and wet my finger then "peck" some food on it and they will hover under my hand and pick at my finger.

    I showed them, don't worry. :) and they're pooping, so I know they're eating. I added a plastic jar lid with pebbles and water, because I wasn't sure if they were using the nipple waterer enough. Maybe another week and I'll switch them.
