Hi Jae, congrats on the new chicks and Muscovy girls!Debby, that meatloaf looks amazing!
@igorsMistress I hope your chicks are doing well. Those Naked Necks are so cute, I wish we had them here.
I have 6 chicks hatched and 3 more to go. 9 out of 12 is pretty good, especially after last time. They are adorable but so far 2 are not Birchens. I think they might be Silver Duckwings. Not that I mind - they are so pretty.
2 of the Birchens are adorable. One has a bright white patch under its chin and white wing tips, and the other looks like it has white spectacles on. It's not a good day for photos - the weather has turned very rainy, but here are a few:

This is the spectacled chick - the flash ruins the affect a bit, but it's very cute. Excuse the damp chick in front - it was NOT happy in the incubator and is much happier cuddling up to its siblings under the heat lamp.

We went to pick up 2 Muscovy girls this morning too, thankfully before the rain started. I'll keep them locked in the big house for a day or so before letting them into the run as they are pretty wild. We've trimmed a wing on each of them as they cannot go flying around here being so close to the busy road. Now DH and I just have to get brave and have a go at butchering the male and one of the girls.
Hi Rene, here's a link to the meatloaf if you want to try it:That turned out so good!
Did you already share the recipe? I would love to try it!
