    You remember I posted about the eggs I hatched that had been sitting on the counter. for 20 something days.... YUP they were Nehemiah's eggs. (my biggie)
    The 1st 10-12 I set were not fertile, so I just started putting in every egg. I now have 17 chicks, I think [​IMG]



    I also hatched 6 Splits.

    We are now eating the eggs. [​IMG] I may save some up and try an auction. I know they are fertile and strong. [​IMG]

    UGH that is horrible Matt!!!!!!!!

    [​IMG] So sorry this had to happen and I hope shes fixable and heals well for you. Let us know how she pulls through.

    Lets hope the dog is a goner, and if not lets hope your aim improves next time it decides to try to make a snack out of someone [​IMG]

    BHep, the runners also did fine. They fell right in with the current runners and are running all over the yard now..If you look out at night after all the chickens have gotten back in the coop, you just see little duck silouhettes in the moonlight..lol

    They stay up all night grazing and take naps throughout the day.

    Matt, even if she can't be stitched up don't do her in!!!!! I had one get tore up bad and couldn't stitch it. I cleaned it a few times a day, kept swat on it and kept her by herself. You can't till now unless you move feathers on her. Good luck and sorry about Sugar [​IMG]

    Matt, I'm so sorry about your birds! That is just awful--and to know it was a neighbor's dog going it makes it even worse! Some people! [​IMG]

    I'm much more a noob than most you folks, but when our turkey had her entire side shredded (I didn't think any way she could pull through) we kept her in a quiet, clean place with food and water handy, and I sprayed it down a couple times a day with a horse healant (blue goo, I think it was) and fed her boiled eggs, too. She healed right up, though she never grew all her feathers back on that side.

    Best of luck!!! [​IMG]

    X2 what RF said. I had a hen that got attacked by a fox. I swabbed her with antibiotic cream and she healed up, feathers grew back and you would never know. [​IMG]

    Pheasant looks rough...he was an escapee at the auction and was snatched out the air.
