    Kloppers did you throw that frozen egg in the fry pan? They are still good. Not much bacteria lives on a frozen egg. and then plus the frying helps. [​IMG]

    I went out to feed and water the birds. I had my phone so I took some pictures of MY New birds EJB's old ones.

    They are NOT friendly, The pictures are through the door and wire. They wanted to escape when I opened the door more than a crack. The lighting is terrible so I did have to lighten the pictures. So, the colors will be off a tad.

    Look at the beautiful cushion comb! Impervious to our weather! She was not really holding still for the pictures.

    Do not worry about their confinement it is only temporary. I made the ICU for one sick bird. I thought about putting them in separate rooms but thought that would be harder on them. I hate crowding them but it seemed best choice for a week or so while they get use to me and this place.



    Also last night I found something that looks really good on eggs and tastes good too.. (Holm turn your head)

    BTW my wife wanted to know why I would put this on eggs. Then she said " oh to show those chicken people!".

    JerrySe... Could you show us a picture of a good bird of a breed and tell us why it is good, without going so far off in the weeds I fall asleep? I try to read those threads and I have no idea what they are talking about 99% of the time..

    What would be a good CLB? Would interest me. I want to know if I have good or bad ones.

    This is why you need me to guide you. Someone that semi-knows chickens and knows when you are at your limit. Trust in me will keep you from over doing it.







    BTW The things in those bottles never touched the eggs themselves, they just looked good sitting on them.

    Okay back from the Court House Gig. The kids liked it when we had to raise our hands and swear and oath that they are our kids and that we say who we are. So Dramatic!

    My son also was yipping about Green Beans at school how they're not allowed to use butter and salt with the new reduced calorie programs for kids. Little bit concerning to me as a parent of a growing (normally) teenage boy. ......But! That's a naughty BYC can of worms waiting to be opened. LOL.

    Ralphie, I showed your special eggs to DH and he chuckled at that.

    Holm your anticipation for Cochin Chicks is palpable. Can't say as I blame you!!!!


    [​IMG] Those Chantecler Hens!!!! [​IMG] The pencil lacing is gorgeous!!!

    It is obvious you are taking proper precautions as any smart person on BYC knows when introducing new birds to a larger flock. They look well cared for to me. and Yes I'm sure they take comfort in having a flock mate in their pen. No worries from this crowd on how they will be treated (like queens I'm guessing-lucky birds). I think you've made a wise breed choice there. And won't Ed stop dead in his tracks when he sees those girlie girls!?!
