Im always huggy Love
Lol.. Back at ya!
Oh, I'm sorry. We had a chick die jumping into a pail of water. Accidents happen, so don't blame yourself.
After what happened to her now we don't let chicks out unless we have only chick-safe waterers set about for the others (we often use rubber buckets or tubs when all the birds are adults) or else I keep them in their broody pen until they are large to be able to get out.
Cool! Where'd you get your Rhodebars?
Beautiful. We have some antics too and I'm always terrified to handle them. Being in a house with five boys means a lot of things get broken, but I guess that is what glue is for.
We can learn together. This is my first planned hatch-a-long also (I've only hatched eggs in my incubator, successfully, one other time).
The offered advice will certainly help you as far as getting a hen to go broody. They love to do it their first or second year and they love to do it at particular times of the year. Spring seems like a big time, and a lot of hens are going broody right now. They love a clean, secluded nest that is regularly used by other hens and has lots of eggs in it. I'm not sure if having a rooster helps with them going broody or not (it doesn't affect egg laying, but this is more behavioral then that), however, I know that roosters encourage it by showing hens nests and calling them to it.
Best of luck with your plans!
that is so cute. Might have to try for that one.
Since so many liked the first, here's another vid... my New Year's Call hatch got really dirty today, lol... diving ducklings...
Hay! Love you too!
Yeah, but I don't have any chicken salt and pepper shakers...
