In the Incubator


On Monday I picked up 7 eggs for the incubator- 6 Salmon Faverolles and 1 Rainbow Egger. Salmon Faverolles are adorable looking chickens with feathered legs, 5 toes, a muff and a beard. They are a very gentle breed and supposed to be good with children. Do a google image search of them to see what they look like, especially the chicks. If all goes well, they should be hatching out on Easter Monday. The Rainbow Egger will be a surprise. It is from an Ameraucana rooster and an unknown mother, so we shall see what hatches out!
The broody hen is doing really well now that she is separated from the other hen. We've had no more casualties. The eggs will be on lock-down as of Friday and I hope we will have some chicks hatching out on Monday!
