Innocent, totally innocent!
He was apologising for nor leaving one for you to shred...
Lukka is not sitting well. Since she went broody, she has changed nest boxes several times, leaving her eggs to get cold. Yesterday I decided to get her some chicks and cut to the chase. Molly was kind enough to meet me in town today with 5 Swedish Flower Hen chicks that hatched yesterday. They are hanging out in the garage until dusk when I will give them to Lukka and see how it goes. I sure hope she takes them because I do not want to raise them. I'll update when I know if the transplant was successful.
Look at that sweetie on the right!
Why is there always one of these in every crowd?
yeah it came
Update on Lukka. She took the five babies immediately and began cooing to them and tucking them under her. I left her in the upper nest box and closed off the opening with chicken wire for the night. That will give her a chance to bond with the chicks and they won't fall out. Tomorrow I will take down the chicken wire and move them to a nest box in the floor.
I am so hoping this takes and she doesn't have to sit. So far so good.
Does anyone know of any local showgirls for sale? I would like to get one or two for granddaughter's birthday.
I have showgirls and deb has showgirls but I dunno how close we are to you.
Deb is definitely closer. I am in the foothills above Sacramento. Hopefully Deb will check in.
What are you looking for, an adult (hen/roo), chicks, eggs...............
I have quite a few SG, mostly all paints.
Definitely pullet if you know yet. Or maybe chicks.
