OKAY that is some funny stuff there!
Looks like today is hatch day.
7 days for my runner eggs and we had movement on one and veins on another. I will report on day 14 which is saturday
I am in. My newly formed plan (and likely unobtainable plan, at that!) Is to hatch EVERYTHING I want to keep for the year. This will be an extreme challenge to my planning skills and somewhat of an engineering feat... but I am going for it. Worst case scenario - I will be sitting in the corner in my incubator/hatching room, hiding under a chair, as chicks fly about causing chaos when I have no room for them all.
I will also need to gently persuade my turkeys, peahens, pheasants and quail to all start laying just a tad earlier... any suggestions
My chicks are outside, but slightly overcrowded. To encourage early laying add heat and light.
You will do fine!
Set up a series of grow out pens and move the hatched chick through them. The last place they go is into your flock at 16 weeks old.
Mine start in rubbermaid tubs, move to a brooder in the garage and then into a larger pen. When they make it to 16 weeks old or so then they move in with the flock or into breeding pens. You just have to time hatches so that they move through the system you set up.
I sell some of them and cockerels are processed.
you KNOW I am jealous!!
he will too!
Bwhahaha! Perfect response!
sounds awesome! Go for it.
OK y'all force me to do this, I know you had fun and I had been there done it too at one time, we all know how I love to have fun too, HOWEVER........

I pray you all understand the reasoning, thank you for your cooperation and for not calling me a party pooper. Ok you can call me any names you wish AS LONG as they are family friendly.
What??! You mean crouching in each species pen, trying to imitate their egg song won't work? Darn it all!
