    I caught a shot of one of my silkies this morning. It likes its spot, on the fork of the roost branch, just barely off the ground.
    Somebody tell me it is either going to lay and egg or crow very soon??? LOL
    It is somewhere between 18-22 weeks old.

    I turned 51 this year so yep, well over the average. Lol.

    I had two eggs in left in the incubator this morning, still no internal pips so I figured that I would try water candling. One of them sunk and had no movement and I discarded it and the other floated and wiggled, so back in the bator it went.

    I had my first complaint from Jay that's my hubby, last night.
    He said, this is your last hatch right?
    I replied um well.
    He said you haven't ordered more eggs? When you started you originally said 4 layers. I said but I also want blue layers too and just got some from ebay. And we had 9 originals of which 5 turned out to be cornish crosses so we had to eat them. 1 died during the first night. This left 3 and 2 of those turned out to be cockrells. This left me with one pullet. I said well honey you have to look up chicken math. I am not able to explain it very well as others on byc. I also said that it is less expensive and more fun than gambling at the casino like his mother does.
    He said but I only built the coop and run for 8 chickens. And you have hatched 15 more chicks and 3 turkeys. And now you are doing more.I said 50% will be male. Even though only 1 out of the 5 blrw is. I think. I also told him that I have cleared sore more woods and brush to make 2 more coops and runs.
    He said who is going to build them. I said that I was going to help him because he loves me.
    I think I might have won the first battle. I better get outside and clear some more brush in the heat.

    I had to go back and read all of the posts from this morning because I had to skim a lot. I knew you were a genius because you can be offended, accept an apology, and move on with life [​IMG]

    Pullet for sure [​IMG]
    Thank goodness my wife is along for the ride with me. She enjoys it as much as I do, and I had a serious chicken math malfunction. I said no more breeds this year. That was before the BCM and Ameraucana. Now I'm trying to figure out where I will build the olive egger coop. And the coop for the second line of BCM. And the coop for the second line of Ameraucanas...

    Someone help me, please[​IMG]


    Well, it could be worse... At least my addiction is chickens. The rest of the men in my family like meth [​IMG]

    Thank you dear!!

    And yes, please stick with the chickens!!!!

    I dont think hubby wants me to hatch any more this year, but when I mention call ducks, or more turkeys, or more bantams, he doesn't really object either. So I'm thinking I might get away with one more hatch. [​IMG]
