    Now for something else, totally random, for grins and giggles.


    How about a couple drawings I did on a 3-subject challenge?

    This was a 5 drawing set - free choice of subject, but all 5 in the series were to have the same 3 objects in them (more or less) and each drawing was to stretch for a different feel from the others. Not sure what I did with the last two drawings, right now, but here are the first three of them.

    (Moon, Apple/Tree, and Chicken were the 3 things I chose to include in the series. These are the first 3. The 4th one was a chicken jitterbugging with a tree with the moon as a disco ball overhead, blackout background. The last one was an older chicken, head shot from front, beak holding a sprouting apple seed, with the moon behind, surrounding the head. I wanted the chicken to grow up as I moved through the drawings, with the apple tree going backwards through its life - barren tree, fruit bearing, flowering, sapling, seed).

    Someone has surely answered this. Trying to catch up. If is one word wars going on, it shouldn't be long..but..in case you weren't answered. I have set cold eggs from outside..of course, they sat in the carton pointy end down for the day, or a few days first until I got what I wanted to set.

    I may have an active Blue Copper Marans by the time the set date comes along myself! I am so excited to see if he is ready, and the girls are laying.

    Not a problem. I get no difference in results from eggs 7 days in fridge, or 7 days at room temp. I have also had 75% hatch on 9 eggs 21 days in fridge.
