Face Time

The two little Welsummer chicks I traded Ferdi for are doing well.  But, they seem bored.  I guess it's understandable, they came from a whole batch of chicks and had plenty of others to talk to, and now it's just the two of them and I guess the conversation's run out.  I go and talk to them in their brooder when I can, but I can't spend much time.  So last night I brought them in for a little time with the kiddidles.

 Did they appreciate it?  Who knows.  The kids did.  They love chicks.  And at least the little ones got out of the brooder for a little while and had a change of scenery.  That's all good.

In other news, 18 eggs arrived in the post office today, ready for the class to hatch on Tuesday!
Hey it's sideways!  Yeay!!!
There were supposed to be 36 eggs, but the other 18 will not make it in time.  However, they should be here after this batch is all "cooked", so I have no complaints.  The biggest problem would be if they showed up during the cycle for the 18 I'm starting next week.  That'd be a mess.  Luckily, we're not going to have that problem, and the incubator is going to be busy for a while.

And in other incubator news, since we're talking about it, the two eggs that are my test batch are up to the pre-hatch phase.  They are out of the turner and their humidity has been increased.  I have candled them this morning, and they are looking good. Maybe the two little bored ones will have some friends to talk to soon.  I'll keep my fingers crossed!

  1. VERY exciting! Lots of different colors of eggs in that box - should be interesting!
    And very cute kids - the chicks, too!

  2. This is a pretty exciting project and it sounds like it's coming together beautifully. Funny about those Wellie chicks. Looks like they're on their way to becoming pets!
