As most of you know, Ruth was one of my original chickens. Had crook neck, nearly died, lived to tell the tale. I hatched a bunch of chickens in Feb. and March and now have a bunch of young roos. They all LOVE Ruth. Poor girl can't get a break. She hides out next door at duck house till evening when she comes running to me to put her back in coop by lifting her up to the roost cause if the roos see her they get her. Often, while running from them, she runs straight to me and jumps up into my arms. I feel for her and tell her it's cause she's so "purty". Thank goodness they aren't ripping her throat open like they did my two Buffs who fought them. I had to put several stitches in one's neck today. Anyway, wasn't sure if young roos were making eggs fertile or not so I put a few of her green eggs in bator and after three days they are developing beautifully. Nice large spider web veins. I put in one egg each day this week so it will be exciting to see what hatches and a regular guess at "Who's the Daddy". I'm thrilled to finally be getting my own fertile eggs and the first ones I'm hatching are my sweet Ruths. I wonder if she'll recognize them in any way?
