Day 5 and also Day 1of Chick Watch!

Confused yet? My 2nd batch of eggs ordered from DC Heritage Poultry in Shawville Quebec finally arrived after being delayed by the storm. So a dozen layer eggs are now incuabting.. I had a heck of a time adjusting the temperature after the addition of these eggs ,so here's hoping something hatches. Yup, those are the risks...

If you candled an egg from the 1st batch, you would see veins developping. We are more than halfway through the first trimester. Time flies when you are a chicken egg. "We can see a thousand miracles around us every day. What is more supernatural than an egg yolk turning into a chicken?" S. Parkes Cadman I could not agree more.

The meat birds will need to be ordered at the end of the month. And still no turkey eggs!! The rams broke out again and hubby is not amused. For a smaller breed, they can knock just about anything down or over!! Ram tough like the slogan goes...

If my ewes are bred, as accidents around here happen, they will be lambing mid April...By then there is supposed to be a few more additions.But given the way things happen around here, I play it by ear and hope for the best.

Today is a nice partly sunny day and I have eagerly awaited the milder temps...Oh please warm up some more!!
