Day 14!! One more week to go and chicks will be peeping away!! A strange thing happens in the incubator about this time. The temperature increase on it's own! That is caused by the fact that there is life in there generating it's own heat. Today is a cold day and they are in my studio which is heated. I usually keep it cooler in there but... So this morning I had to slightly adjust the temp.
I forgot to mention in my last post that the Canada geese are slowly returning!! I have yet to see a Robin. Poor things, it's freezing again and not a worm in sight for them to eat! Also, I witnessed for my very first time, Laszlo turkey doing the mating dance! The stomping feet, very impressive. No eggs yet... My friend has Muscovy ducks and they are not laying yet either. She swears that when they start to lay, Spring is here.
