    good morning

    cat woke me up to go out at 4am,,,plugged in the coffee and fell back asleep

    woke up at 5:30 and heard a PEEP!

    1st one out came from one of the 4 Wheaton Americana eggs,,,so a possible olive egger, my DD will be thrilled

    poor little critter is all over that 'bator,,,I think she (notice the positive thinking?) is coxing the others to hurry up

    does "strong and sensible" occur often here?

    We have 11 chicks hatched between friday night and this morning. There were 20 in the incubator but we knew that 2 or 3 were no gos. (wishful thinking) so we are hoping a few more will hatch.
    I can tell you 9 of the 11 that came out of eggs which they are. I have two that are either an olive egger mutt or an Andalusian. They both hatched over night and were wandering around the incubator early this am. They are both large fowl. Both look to have tiny combs right from the get go.

    Happy Foolish Hatch Day!!
    Congrats to those that are hatching chicks today! I set the remaining quail eggs so TO has potentially 100 Bobwhites coming her way...hehehe....either that or I'll have little quail to take to a swap....
    Welcome to the newbies and I'm sorry about those that lost chickens. Welcome back BBP glad you like Aruba.
    That's all I remember. Skimmed through the 10 pages to catch up.
    The chick days in Ill went well but it was cold so I think there were not as many people as there could have been.

    Ummm....got a load of laundry in....that's exciting....ummm.....I want to take a nap?......ummmm.... just not a lot so say this morning. Got my critter chores done, sat down, and don't want to get back up. The chill in the air has my joints aching. I think I'll make more coffee....that always works....

    So with that: GOOD LUCK ON THE FOOLISH HATCH EVERYONE!!!

    Oh my gosh Dr.H.... put that poor cat on a diet!!! She looks like my 20lb'er used to! What does she weigh anyway?????

    Sam, love the Heeler..... my in-laws used to have a Blue Heeler/Black Lab cross...... he was the very best dog... He was so smart, he figured out where the chickens laid their eggs in the barn and would go in there and help himself to one every once in a while. He would bring it outside to the gravel driveway and toss it a bit to get it to break open.
