    So I'm sitting in my living room (front of my property) and one of my red hens is cackling her fool head off out front. So I go out to see what the commotion is. I find her sitting in the window box right outside my living room window, under the overhang of my rhododendron......along with 7 eggs!!!! Since she's in the process of the laying number 8, the little stink has been at this for over a week.....

    So....are they any good?

    Yes. But if you are worried, just do the float test.

    yes, float test. Been there, done that. Although there are so many chicks here now that I usually throw the 'found' eggs back to the chicks. Very good for them.

    Baby chick is standing now. Really not looking right, kind of lopsided. Possibly splay let too. Think I'll pop it into a cup

  8. Motorcycle Chick: You have been busy haven't you? Sounds like my life. Today was the rooster chase. I had decided my RIR's were staying penned up today so that my poor penned up babies could roam the yard in safety. Problem, I forgot and let him out, remembered and the chase was on. Very undignified in a bathing suit, kids laughing (at me or him I don't know)caught him after 10 minutes and my 2 year old let him out. Chase back on. Good Grief. My babies are so happy to be out though, it was well worth it.
    Huge excitement also, my first Serama egg, and it was fertile. A couple more months and I'll be hatching them, YAY!!!
    I thought my baby Valentine looked so pretty walking around the yard today I just have to post a pic. Not a great shot, but I'm a proud Mama.(He's my avatar, they grow so fast)

    Today was my day to clean the duckling brooder/give the ducklings a bath. So I bring each of them up from the basement 2 at a time, drop them in the rubbermaid tub i've filled with 6 gallons of water....they happily chortled and dunked and drank and flipped...till they were waterlogged. Then I took them out and put them on a beach towel...that they promptly attempted to graze on....then wander off that to explore the great big world of the kitchen...and then off into the dining room! GAH! 2 of those sneaks were good at hide and seek. Now they are all safely back in the brooder with fresh shavings and fresh food and water...YAY!
