CAUSE BABY LOOK AT YOU NOW!!!! Below are some pictures of the chicks we have been welcoming since yesterday. The little yellow one, I’ve named Donald Trump…. Because of the blond locks that looked like the Donald’s hairdo. There are three more eggs in the incubator and 12 in the Styrofoam ice chest under a heat lamp. These were the eggs from under the sitting hens out in the barn. We decided to get them into the house to place them under constant heat, because they should have been hatched already, but the chickens allowed them to chill at times, which is supposed to make the hatching ordeal take longer each time they chill down. We therefore, wanted to remove them and get them on constant heat to stop the delay in getting this hatching stuff over with. It’s too late in the season for little chicks, but we had no choice, other than to do it or throw the eggs away. Once big enough, the chicks can stay in the barn with the Bantams under a heat lamp.
We just got back from Vicks brother’s and parent’s house where we spent the evening dining, laughing and talking. Had a good roasted chicken dinner and pumpkin pie and brownies for dessert…… with coffee of course!
Tomorrow, we will measure for the fence planks and call Ed Pooter’s, Jr. from Middle Field Lumber and get a quote on the price of the lumber for the pasture fence. This should look pretty good once it is done and white washed.
