My black hen got serious...
So did Claudia the RP hen
That is so cool! Hope they don't get ticked at each other hehe!
Oh no, what are you going to do with MORE ducklings.
One must eat, Ticks, and extra scovies are mighty tasty grilled. I always offer them for sale though before resorting to butchering. My little hook bills are growing too.
Claudia had all the eggs to herself when I got home from work so I gave the duck some araucana eggs to brood.
My second muscovy is also looking serious, I think she has ten eggs now.
What about turkeys. Would you consider selling them?
I think we DO need to make a trip down there in 28 days, looking at my calender now.
I had 13 muscovy eggs as of yesterday, i guess this morning it will be 14. I think mine is ready to sit now, lots of fluffy feathers in the nest and she sits on them at night.(they are outside under my mudroom stairs)
Mine are FINALLY starting to lay!
Quote:Even under a Turkey Muscovy eggs take more like 35 days than 28 days.
There are no fertile turkey eggs yet. My tom Clark, who was a rescue, has huge chemical burns on his feet still. It will be a long process for them to heal. The sores on his breast/keel have healed and fallen off.
His feet are too sore for him to breed yet plus he was unsure of what the hen turkey wanted. He will be ready in time. For now he plays guardian of the farm and gobbles furiously when he hears the wild gobblers in the mountains here.
Claudia's former owner tells me she is a very experienced mother and is willing to sit as long as it takes for eggs to hatch. Something tells me she will have chicks and ducklings.
