    it was roughly 100* F during that time.

    Is it a problem? Dimwit silkie went back to the wrong nest after her daily constitutional! [​IMG]

    These eggs are very important to me. [​IMG]

    Quote:This is true, Dimwit has managed it a couple times before. Still my heart sank when I peeked in the coop and saw her on the wrong nestbox. Funny part is...the nest she went back to had all green eggs in it. Please don't tell me that the little twit has a color preference now. [​IMG]

    Thanks y'all. Baby cochins here we come! [​IMG]

    Side note to Heather - blame all the BYCers that swore up and down Jethro had to be a male. [​IMG]
