    Tonight when I went out to close up the coop one of my Jaerhon hens was all puffed up in the nest box. Kind of ironic because I just had our first few eggs hatch in the incubator. Not that either of us have our timing right or that she will stay serious. I just thought it was cute since not a single one of my Jaerhons will sleep in the coop but she looked so cozy. I wish she had done that a week ago and she could raise the babies herself. They probably need to sit for a while anyway before they would get the instincts to stay with the chicks. Anyway I did take a few pictures with my crumby camera through a dirty aquarium (sorry) but you can tell which one is the tow headed little boy!

    Some of the chicks I take to swap meets or sell at our farm and some I keep and some I hatch for other people. I sell eggs and I have people coming up a lot wanting to buy either layers or chicks. My excess boys I take to the auction after awhile. I keep them for awhile but now with more hatches I'll have plenty more and will have to make space. I did take the summer off as it was soooo hot but back into the swing of things again.

    I don't know that I have any fever, but my cranky hens sure do! [​IMG]

    I have one that should hatch the 23rd and the other around Halloween. I guess she tricked me! I let her set in self defense. She is intense right now, and I would like to stay attached to my various body parts... [​IMG]

    Amazing that one 3 lb banty hen suits herself and the rest of us get outta her way!!


    And Cmom those peeps are adorable! I think I want some!

    My hen that went broody hasn't budged, I am really tempted to stick a couple of the unhatched eggs under her. Jaerhons are not really supposed go broody from what I understand, what is happening around here?
