    [​IMG] Good hatching vibes going your way! I just set 14 quail in lockdown. Trying to wind down hatches for the year, and focus on my lavender Orps, & bantam breeds. I am going to keep working on quail, guinea and muscovy too, since I won't have anymore goose eggs til spring.

    There is a lady near Lafayette that is selling peachicks for $30. She has 8 full grown peafowl and quite an amazing sanctuary for them. I will verify with her if she is still selling and let you know.

    Thanks. We didn't have a plan when we built the coop/run, but did study others and read what they liked and didn't like about their own coops. All I knew for sure was it was going to be red w/white trim, to match our yard barn. The wagon wheel has also served as a cucumber trellis.

    About that huge rooster, he's been spotted again this morning, CROWING! I'm not going out until he's gone.

    that's funny about the eggs. Mine all free range too and we went thru that last year. We would only find one or two eggs in the coop we had to hunt for the others. Mine had a hiding spot under an old truck cab. Once we found it and cleared it out they stopped (for the most part). Maybe some decoy eggs in the coop would help? Golf balls or something?

    We have a pretty small fair down here. I feel like this one still sticks to the rules...our judges watch the kids before shows to see who knows what they are doing and who looks like they have never touched their animal before. They all get questioned about their animal. I was very pleased with the way the judge explainedbthe good and bad to the mini 4-hers as well! I hope it stays this way down here!
