    Candle time wasn't much fun. Even the turkeys are taking some time off. Candled 20 eggs and pulled 12 clears. All 16 purchased chicken eggs look clear.

    Breach baby just hatched 20 minutes ago, very lively and chirping up a storm. Moving around well. It has a small red protrusion where the umbilical cord was attached. Will this shrink on its own. There is no blood or yolk.

    Great!! It should heal up fine on it's own. If you have bacitracin or an antibiotic ointment (w/o pain reliever) you can put a little on the "navel".

    Baby pics of my May 19 and June 4 chickens (just a few of them). There are two crosses in play: my 2 EE roosters crossed with my 2 EE hens, and my 2 EE roosters crossed with red sex link hens.

    [​IMG] I hope these three are all pullets
    [​IMG] the black headed bird has the stance of a cockerel, but no comb color. Photos don't do justice to these feathers. I hope it's a hen as this one is a keeper.

    [​IMG] A very feather footed pullet but I don't like her body, it's very compact for her legs. I'll let her grow and see how she develops. The wheaten Amearaucana type is a nice bird.

    [​IMG] This is an example of the pullet type I am working toward. Broad, deep, wide body, nice color, feathered shanks. The pullet to her left is also very pretty, with her Brahma blood she may end up as the foundation of my meaty strain.

    [​IMG] I love the pattern on this bird. The photo does not do her justice.

    [​IMG] He's crowing. He's a good little roo, if I grab one of the birds in the pen and it cries out he will run over and look to see what is happening.
    [​IMG] Here is a poor photo of my barred, slate shanked EE pullet.

    Pics of my project turkey crosses. These are 7 week old poults that weigh twice as much as their Narragansett x Narragansett siblings. No idea if they are toms or hens yet but I do hope they are hens. I think the one on the right is a tom, though.
