Re: *****Spring Chicken Moma Chat Thread!****

to finish out the egg song chatter... my girls are free-range. so really, they hit the coop (which is in the pasture near the house) and then sing sing sing their merry way up to the back deck. i swear the maran uses a bullhorn. i will try the treats...there's always compost in my kitchen bucket. any other ideas?

i'm excited to candle again tomorrow (day 14) and see how everyone's doing. yay!

Liz, if you want any feather leged mixes and a cpl pure, lmk. Fertility is temp down. I just tossed 5 out of 24, 1 had a bact ring though. That's horrible for the girls. I normally get wayyyyy better numbers! Has to be the crappy weather. Half cochin would give you feathered legs, but not heavily and they would do well in the heat. My big gals actually did just fine in our heat. Just hung in the shade.

AFM- My only hatched half br is georgious!!!! It's a boy though! The legs are all br too! So pretty! I have more in the bator. I figured we might as well enjoy the beauty of meat chickens!

I had 3 new eggs today!!!! WooHoo! That means the ones I left with the flock ARE female!!!
2 had blood in them. I've never had that before but I did read quite a few places that this is normal. Just tissue passing before the egg is encased by the shell. SOOOO tiny! I expected that with them being so young. I can't get over this. Why doesn't everyone have a cpl mixes if they lay this early, haha! October babies!!! I do like how these mixes grew so fast! I'm floored. I'd say one month to plump up and they will be ready to butcher. WOOOO, yummy meat from our own flock again!

I don't think there is anything you can do Joy? Mine stop singing shortly after leaving the coop. They sit inside to sing. When I set them out, they stop. They have toned it down a slight notch. I'm out there every day though. Congrats on getting so close!!!! I really hope you get great numbers hun! You are gonna have some major surprise colors when they feather in. They all look so simular at hatch, lol. Except the brahma and rsl X's are yellow.
