    I think RK is rubbing it in their face. "You can't touch me now and look at all of my defenders. OH....and did I mention we have meal worms over here twice a day"?[​IMG]

    Good Luck Chirp, I hope the hatch does well. Beware of the chicken math [​IMG]

    Out of the shipped eggs in July, only my olive eggs hatches ...got two boys so that kind of stinks but it was a nice first hatch and learning experience. They couldn't be candled much by day 10.

    LOL she is so jealous of RK I am sure. The babies got so big so fast!


    Cheeka the weather here is crazy it was so hot today.

    Anyone else getting ads? I am annoyed with these popup ads that make noise.


    RESULTS & Pictures for hatch 2 are posted on page: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ually-try-to-do-things-right/40#post_11983252


    But here is a group shot rather than me posting too many pictures:

    I just made a crazy spur of the moment purchase! I bought 3 French Black Copper Maran chicks that I pick up tomorrow and am going to attempt to put them under Clarabelle with her chicks! Am I crazy? I think chicken math may have struck again!

    Hello to all. :frow
    Ms. Clessie let me candle her eggs tonight.

    She had pushed 2 aside and I found 1 in the middle of the pile that were clear. There were a few that I thought might be questionable, but decided to let her be the judge.

    So out of 14, we're looking at 11 possible. This weekend she will probably go into lock down. Need to get her pen ready. Thought I'd send a photo, not a great shot, but just the same, wanted you to see. Talk to you soon. ;)
