I guess the moral here is
Don't mess with Pennsylvania!
And don't anyone hurt our Sally!
You know it!!! Read that thread now....
Trying a broody hatch. Finally recieved my shipped eggs after a 6 day adventure through the usps. Seven weren't detached, so I put them plus two of mine under her. I marked them in case others get laid in the best.
This is totally uncharted territory for me, so I'll just let nature take its course and see what happens!
I had to do something this weekend I really really didn't wanna do. I broke my baby girl's heart. My oldest was attached to Copper, Copper was the BCM roo killed by the dog. Before he died he had some offspring. From the babies were a pair of blacks. Well Sunday before I left for work I had to put him down. He was a BCMxComet and had such great colors, and posture. This winter when it was bitter cold he jumped in the water and had gotten frost bitten feet up to the ankles. We went out Sunday morning and CJ -Copper Junior had lost his feet and was limping around on stubs.
Congrats on the broody! They are a lot of fun, really neat to watch the process, and once hatched it is priceless to watch the little ones following mamma around!!
So sorry to hear , mother nature can be a rough teacher. Glad your little girl has you to help her through the learning process.
Thanks for taking care of our Sally. You're a good friend.
Chiques: X2 on Fisherlady's comment. Broody's are the best.
Oh Chad, so sorry.
Ok what did I miss? Someone is taking shots at Sally?
First you need the skids from "shingles" they are much tighter and thinner boards. Its just 5 skids, one he ripped all the boards off of and made the front and ripped the strips for the bigger holes to prevent weasels from getting in. We laid one on the ground and held the others on it and DH screwed it the top fit right inside then and the overhang is made with that one sheet of roofing.
this is the only other one I got.... when its nice I can take a video maybe??? or you could come see all of the pallet coops and get some chicks! he he he
Well they apologized so that was good of them! before PA put a real smack down on them!
Oh my that is terrible! sorry for the lose!
Back off!! the Blues are Mine!!!
