    Thanks. They have been making trouble for us for several months now, but I never thought they would go so far as to steal my hens! They have no direct access to their property from the road and use an easement on our property to access theirs. DH says we should fence it off and make the find a different route. (There are other areas clear enough for a driveway that aren't on our property.

    Love it! It would be great for the next caption contest too,
    That totally sucks. Sounds like it's time for a game camera.

    Too bad you can't get your hands on a skunk and shove it in there. Are they keeping them or eating them? I would get a camera set up or something. That really sucks. People are the worst.

    Newest babies. These are 2 day old isabelle leghorn X dark brown leghorn splits. There are several Isbars in the mix too. Got the incubator heating up for a bunch more isbar eggs. My blue copper marans are laying too now and I'm anxious to see the results from the new roo. Still on the pre hatch along test runs!

    The Serama babies have arrived, they have been hatching since yesterday. I have 14 out of 18 strong babies in the brooder. One in the bator still, against my better judgement I assisted and it is not walking too good. One pipped but never zipped and two with no pips. I will pull the weak one tmr. quickly as I have two runner ducks due on Fri. in lockdown. The next batch is due next Wed. I sure do love my Sportsman and the capacity it has. I love the staggered hatches.

    It seems that the humidity change for the first hatch did not effect this second batch. We will see how it goes for the other hatches. I do think I want to come up with a separate hatcher at some point in the future. Might look into making a cooler hatcher. Just for peace of mind and ease of operation. [​IMG]
