    Sad, sad day happened yesterday! 6 chickens dead from our neighbor's dog. Beautiful rooster dead and beautiful hens dead. Little brother was crying. Horrible sight to see! We had 19 chickens altogether. But a good thing is that our neighbor is taking responsiblity. They are paying for our dead chickens and fencing up their dogs.

    I am a duckie momma, woohoo! Drove all around creation today to get them, there's hardly any ducks on CL, must be too early. The dark is a Pekin/Black Crested mix female, and the other is a Welsh Harlequin male. DH just didn't want to wait four weeks for my eggs to hatch, who am I to argue with that? [​IMG]

    un two more babies hatched- an andalusian and a marans mix. The marans has something that looks like an imbilical cord hanging out of its bottom and looks a little weak... is this internals perhaps? not sure. Leaving it sleep under heat lamp right now. Hoping for best. Cheryl- Andalusian looks blue or splash, will let you know when not so wet looking!
    Had some pip and rock this morning, but no new progress. Suppose I need to let them be! This is hard business

    on the Marans chick probably just the cord that attaches it to the yolk, give it a few hours or so- they get tired from breaking out. The splash Andalusians are usually pretty white looking when hatched and stand out from the rest. Good luck with the rest of the hatch!

    ok, it is probably a blue then. Does not look black enough, but does not seem white. tips of wings seemed white which made me assume. Hoping for a splash- they are gorgeous!
    Had another Amaracauna/Frizzle/sizzle baby hatch really quick. it has good lungs!
    Should I be worried at all about the ones that pipped this am but have done nothing since?
