Yeah, well you're a keeper for sure. I need the lightheartedness of your posts. I love learning about the hermits. Chip and Tiny have wormed their way into my life. So yeah, have you around is special.
I'm done traveling now. I've done way more than my fair share so I'm content remaining here in my space. Even if we never meet, we've had the fun of this forum.
But I do like to travel, and do so for our business a few times a year, so never know!
But, of course, I have learned so much and value your opinions (collective and plural ‘your’ here.) All of you, and I enjoy learning about crazy people raising 57 quail too!
I’m kidding- actually I’m happy for you, I think you kinda needed those too! You haven’t said much about your guineas lately- they must be behaving better these days…
I think I've lost track of how many states I lived in, some of them more than once. Actually I've lived in AL three times! Yeah, no more big travels for me.
I just came in from looking at the little devils. I really, truly do not know what I was thinking. Other than I probably wasn't. The Guineas are still here. Both girls on a nest next to the foundation of the house. The boys don't like it that they don't come to bed at night but it does keep them home.
It really does feel like you just got here. Yeah, we've all covered a lot of territory but it still feels so new.
I agree I can hardly believe it’s been a year with our chickens already- I think I found the forum in trying to figure out what Chip and Jackie were! And y’all did just great.
Robin you would adore these little babies! They’ve got fuzzy legs all around, and all chipmunk but different too- every one has totally different stripes and variations of colors. They’re gonna be stinkin adorable.
One more thing- since they did have some that hatched really early, should I watch and be sure they stay on the rest of the nest? They’re at least 4 days later from this one- I should’ve stuck it under Jackie not the little girl but she already had 7… and I thought the date was closer. Til she finally let me see an egg of hers and the date on it.
Yup. They look to all be OEGB Chips babies.
And thanks Dan! I love having you both in my life. You’re good people.
Robin- the one parenting you front also has eggs due in another 4-5 days… I think the official date She set was 24, which means a few more days yet. I’m just hoping she sees those through. Not that it’s a need but they’re so close now it would be a shame to let them go.
OM-Give all the chicks to one hen and separate her from the other. Then, the hen with the eggs will settle down and brood until the other eggs hatch. When all have hatched you could put the hens together to possibly coparent.
