    Dawn just don't GET DELAWARES OMG!!! The NOISE, the Flying Flapping Demented POPCORN birds.

    You think them suckers are noisy the Dels I got this year are insane. The little sizzles are constantly sitting there in stunned silence at the antics of these manic little yellow fuzzballs. They grow like weeds. If you open the door they're on you like ants. Hi! Watcha GOT! GIMME!!! And that's at ten days. In a few weeks they're going to be unstoppable. I'm flat amazed.

    I have to resist the impulse to save the Sizzles from the head hopping, back leaping wild things. They're going to HAVE to live together. I've just never had a batch this nutty.

    Maybe it IS spring or maybe we both got possessed birds.

    Whatever it is, make it stop. LOL of course I have poults and two chicks in the bator, more eggs under a broody turkey and chicks coming at the end of the month.

    Things are gonna get interesting.

    What have I done?

    I hope to hatch at least 50 of my own in April sometime
    25 coming in May
    13 poults & 5 more chicks coming in June


    and NO Delewares on the list.. whew! DD wants seabrights.. I hear they are the loudest, noisiest most bossy little buggers ever! I'm going to HAVE to talk her out of those!
