    We have our firewood stacked under the awning of our front porch. The bark we collected into an open plastic garbage bin, so it is about half full of kindling. It has wheels, so I'll fill it with firewood to haul into the house. I have to be careful, though, as the hens routinely hop up and into this garbage bin to lay eggs on top of the kindling.

    Ya I know what I'd do but it would be bad advice. Luckily my neighbors are pretty far away. And would never try anything like that. We shoot on are property all the time we have a little home made gun range. So people pretty much stay off are property. But like all ready said the best thing you can do is get a camera. Point in in that direction with a sign saying will prosecute camera on premises.

    I took a break for a while. It was originally just going to be for 2 days, but that's not what ended up happening. On day 2 of my break I took the brooder out to clean and give the chicks some outside time. It was a fairly nice day and they HATED the dog crate, but they were ok. That is, until 2 of them discovered a way to escape. They hid so well I thought the cats got them. I found one of them on Tuesday. My guess is that it came out of hiding at night and froze to death. I still haven't found the other one and I have zero hope that I will.

    At least I'm getting a new bator Saturday.

    And the babies will still be adorable! [​IMG]

    They're getting ready to hatch! [​IMG]

    88! Why can't I have that many? Lol. [​IMG]


    Touch down! [​IMG]

    I'm so sorry about the chicks you lost. [​IMG] Keep an eye on the others, as they may be weaker for a few days. I hope they stay healthy.

    Yeah! [​IMG]


    So cute!

    My incubator has a blanket also. [​IMG]

    That is so frustrating! I can't believe they are doing that! I hope you can get them back soon.

    Yay, broody hens! [​IMG]

    They are beautiful!

    Congratulations on the seramas! I hope the weak one gets better soon.

    Yay, chicks! They are so adorable!

    They love to lay in the silliest of places, don't they. [​IMG]

    could you post pictures I'd like to see the color. My eggs are light blue. Hard to get a picture because flash aways flashes and lighten them even more. Need to find the book on this old camera.

    Hi Rad, sorry you lost 2 of your chicks. I hate when that happens. Hopefully the last one will miraculously turn up unharmed.

    It's so fun watching those little beaks peck against the egg knowing that they are trying with all of their might to get OUT OF THAT THING... I made myself walk away and go do other things. [​IMG]
