    :lau I would never say a fly was lousy. Some of my worse ties caught a lot of fish. I have yet to have a fish tell me that I wrapped my hackle the wrong direction. :lau

    Haha! I was wondering how you were getting your ear close enough to hear that without losing it to a ticked off hen.. I hope your little guy does okay. I am letting her do her job, and won't check under her anymore. I am dreading the thought of bad hatches. I hope everything goes okay. Especially with my flub up today. I have a security camera in the barn on the alpacas that has a very sensitive microphone, so I should be able to hear peeps should they hatch during the night. She has been an A+ broody, so I hope her mothering instincts are just as good. I'm excited to see what hatches. I know the silkies for sure, but the other 4 eggs are Gus' (my wyandotte roo) and my ee hen and wyandotte hen and austalorp and minorca hen crosses. So they are going to be mystery chickies.

    I'm trying to hatch some sumatra chicks to have broodies in the future. The eggs arrive looking great but I know the PO is messing with them somehow. I typically do well with hatching eggs from my flock with the exception of incubator and power malfunctions but with shipped eggs my hatch rate is less than desirable. And I think it is my luck that the first cl chick out is a boy, the head while not yet dry looks like there is a dot. I really want a broody so I'm hoping the sumatra's hatch. It is the only reason that the injured chick is getting care instead of a visit to Moses. Typically I don't want a chick if it is not a strong chick or if I have to care for the tiny thing more than I would another chick. But I really want some sumatra chicks.
