    Oletymer, I dearly wish you could do a portrait of our Bess, but it's nigh impossible to get a good picture of her. All you see is long black hair covering everything and it's a type of hair coat that absorbs the light instead of reflecting it in a picture.

    My sister has an invisible fence...not like the buried kind, but one that has a base station. She places it in her dining room which is at the back of the house, thus the dogs have free roam behind the house...but only have to the curb in front of the house.....oh...and she hasn't put batteries in the dogs collars in prolly 2 years...once the dogs got their mild zaps a few times....they had no more interest in going into the street or off the property.

    My understanding is that you keep the incubator closed until everyone is out. Most people agree that the few that are out and bowling encourage the others to hatch faster.

    I don't, but there's a vendor at a farmer's market I occasionally do that sells them (butchered) Over the weekend, I can find out if they have a breeding flock, and if they sell eggs/poults. They're from Juniata county, so not terribly far either.

    He's quite a handsome guy. Other than his ear set, he looks very much like a black & tan English Shepherd, like Fisherlady and I have. If he were, that would be a good thing. I don't know from personal experience, but I've heard GSD usually have too much prey drive to be safe with chickens.

    Ok so need help, the other 2 eggs have shown no progression! They both pipped but they didn't pip well more like just put cracks in their eggs. So I just removed the little bit that they. Raked in hopes if they got air they would move a long better but nothing! What should I do? Should I remove the original 2 and just leave them be or should I assist them in anyway! Please any help is welcome!! :/
