    I kid you not, i got 1 egg, that's right ONE today. And I have a LOT of chickens. Of course it was my BR Mabel, she is my best girl. All the temp swerves up and down, I think have their bodies confused.
    Many of my friends locally are having the same problems.
    [​IMG]i still get excited every week, have a hours old Bourbon Red poult tucked in my shirt, hatched way ahead of everyone else, 3 days early! it was peeping pitifully and fully dry So when I added water he went to the brooder. Strong active lil tumblebug [​IMG]Hoping a few more BR Poults hatch and have royal palm hatching also. More guineas [​IMG] and a few australorp too.

    pipd~ It's just that you constructed such an outstanding addition, made sure it blended with the existing structure, and incorporated the woodsy view. After all of your aesthetic considerations, it was surprising that your painting wasn't as perfected as the rest of your art installation. vickichicki and I will be over to complete the last touches. Victoria, if I'm not there yet, you start without me. [​IMG]

    I'd be afraid that the door would open and a predator would be waiting. Or the guillotine-like door would slip. I'll stick with sending DH out early in the morning to let the flock out. [​IMG]

    So, that's where the UFOs land, in your backyard.

    We got a Japanese beetle trap also, per your advice about 5 weeks ago. Not a beetle to be found here either.
    Wbo needed the training, is what I wonder. I think for those who have flocks bigger than about 15, the automatic doors make a lot of sense. I thought about it too, but since the run is so secure, our pop door stays open 24/7. It's the run door that spews chickens around here, we have 7 in our flock. Looking for a full size frizzle or 2, but no more than that.

    The DW told me about a hawk episode yesterday, she was sitting in her usual spot drinking coffee/reading in some shade. She said suddenly the girls tried to run thru the fence, she looked around and saw a hawk about 10'' tall sitting on another chair arm about 10 feet away from her. They had a stare-off, and about 1 minute later the hawk flew off. It may have been the cooper's hawk I posted some pictures of about a 11 days ago, but she couldn't ID it.
    Vicki and I will be right over with our paint brushes to correct anything. John, you can blame her for the whole metric thing. I hated that as an auto mechanic, now I have to have 2 sets of everything. Don't get me started on torx/reverse torx/tamper proof torx/16 point allens/etc. Stupid engineers, ''Hey, let's make a different fastener head. No need to use the proven hex head, let's invent something new. How about a 5 sided bolt? 7 anyone? Why stop there, we can make those people buy a new set of $10,000 wrenches every few years, and obsolete the old ones''. I think they get a kickback from the Snap-On dealers.

    Glad he is having a good time. My son Kyle could pick him up pretty easily. We, on the other hand, could not. Is he a father yet? I'd like to come see him sometime, but I'd probably have to do it without the DW. She'd get upset at not having him around here, but I constantly remind her he is still alive! Let's see. Go to freezer camp, or be happier then a w**** in a hen house.

    From my experience, you can't tame guineas. They aren't really a domesticated species like chickens. Mine would come when called for treats, get close to me, but never let you pick them up or touch them. None of mine ever attacked me though.
