  1. Well, I ain't candling her eggs :gig

    She's still pancaked over the eggs, but as of this morning, still getting up to eat and such. I'll report tomorrow on whether she hops out when I serve up the FF or not.

    Makes me want to hatch so bad. Can't wait to see how many you get! Good luck.
     
  6. Well, while Frieda looked very interested in the FF, she moved nothing but her head and neck, and she was quietly clucking the whole time I was out there :)

    Thought I'd take a pic of the locked down 'bator, if for no other reason than to see how easy it'll be to get pip and zip pics ;)

    lol thats a good one!
     
  10. Yep, Frieda's locked down--I offered a treat to her on the nest (which is something I normally do--I figure the extra calories can't hurt, since she's only eating once a day) and she barely registered that I was there. So, since the nest box is high enough that any chicks that follow her out wouldn't be able to follow her back, I add some to lock down.
