It's been FOREVER since I was on BYC! I'm a regular over on BYH, but the chickens have had a backseat for a couple years. This winter, we had a predatory raccoon. Jerk took out most of my hens before we managed to capture and kill him. I'm down to 7 hens...lost all of my favorite girls including my DD's BooBoo chicken and Raven, which we got years ago from Speckledhen. It was pretty devastating. He also killed a hen from our first ever hatch... Anywho, DH was back in GA last weekend completing our move to Indiana (we've been storing 3/4ths of our 'stuff' in our house down there) and the wonderful FlightsOfFancy Farm sent a dozen hatching eggs home with him (since he FOUND our incubator and Sew-A-Bator down there!). So, Wednesday morning - we put those eggs in the bator! We haven't hatched anything in probably 3 years, I've just been ordering pullets from MM to replenish our layers. I have 7 Golden Comet eggs and 5 Crele Penedesenca crossed with Cree & Harlequin Ameraucanas Those will make olive eggers. I plan to let my daughter and son choose one each of the Crele crosses to name and call their own, since they were so devastated over the loss of BooBoo.
