    I may or may not have ordered an acrylic door for my hatcher to replace the one with the window.

    Welcome! [​IMG]


    I love blue eggs!

    So adorable! I can't wait for my mix chicks to hatch!

    Awesome incubator! I love the quail eggs! [​IMG]

    Yeah, the power didn't go out here, but the temperature swings are killer. The poor month old banties are walking around all stiff in the cold and my eggs were too cold yesterday and over-heated today. But I've found eggs and chicks to be really hardy so I can keep hoping!

    I'm glad everything worked out for you. [​IMG]

    Cool mix! I love Brahmas and Marans.

    YAY!!! [​IMG]

    So sorry to hear that, I hope you start feeling better soon. We'll be praying for you. [​IMG]

    Quail are awesome. I think people should keep them instead of parrots. They are friendly, cheap, and they can't bite your finger off. Lol. [​IMG]

    She might be thinking about being broody or she might have just been being a protective hen on a nest. When its cold hens like to sit on nests for a night. I did have a broody leghorn, but sometimes they break-up. If she was only on the eggs a day they likely didn't develop very much if at all so you could save them if you want by putting them inside and putting some fake eggs or fresh eggs in the nest to see if she'll return to it, then returning her eggs to her once she's settled.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Dogs do love to chase small things that run or fly. Our dog is a Aussie Shepherd mix and likes to herd our birds!

    How are you feeling today? Third day is usually the worst. Hope you are taking it easy .. third day or not..can't remember when you had this done, but I remember mine was tough ..yrs and yrs. ago. I did do the walking like suggested, down the block and back. Every day until I was healed. Slooooowly down the block and back.
