    Thank you all!!! Puppies and chicks are all doing well!!!! had 9 puppies and 7 chicks hatch out of 11 eggs. Broke open the remaining eggs and I am concerned why the heck the other 4 did not make it. One of the stopped at about 16 days... the others looked as if they made it to 18/19 days... really dont understand why they did not hatch. but for my first shot at hatching I am counting my blessings that I did get the 7!!!! Anyone have any Ideas????

    Oh by the way... LOL I have duckies hatching today!!!! One has already peeped if that is the right word for ducks breaking the shell LOL.... the other one we are still waiting on, which happens to be sweeds baby. Oh I still miss her!!!!!

    Also, We believe Daisy the Muscovie I got from Prissy is setting on a clutch. we see her occasionally but not very often. I just hope and pray that nothing gets her... she is out in the thick of woods somewhere hiding, really wish she would have chosen a closer spot!!!!

    We also had an attack the night before last... one of the turkeys attacked my BR roos... they are bleeding from the comb area... now have them sucluded and doing everything we can for them. Have asprin in the water, and cleaning wounds and using anti biotic ointment on them. My hospital is being used for the babies so they are in a pin by them selves. UGGGG Busy, Busy, Busy!!!!

    And all this is going on while I am working.... almost think I should quit my job to take care of them.... but need the money... so leaving it in DH's hands!!!!

    Through all of this I am still taking pics all the time.... when my computer is up and running I will be sure to post the pics!!! We ended up with 7 br/mix babies one of them mixed with a light brahma oh you should see the feet with the feathers!!! It is so cute!!!!!!! then one is light brahma full or bred with buff orp... not sure yet! they are all so darling!!!! oh yah and positive one is mixed with BO/BR they are a week old now... and all doing great!!!

    Just wanted to catch you up on all that is happening.... thank you all for your support and information!!!!!
