No really, Daniel found a shirt at Goodwill that says this and has a picture of some yellow marshmallow peeps on it. Amanda LOVES it…it’s pretty much her favorite shirt ever.
But we do have four little chicks now. The beginning was rough, though. I already mentioned that one chick died cause it had some sort of birth defect. Well, turns out another had a bad leg, and after about a week it wasn’t improving at all (getting worse in fact), and the other chicks were constantly pecking it, so we had to put that one down. :( Then our strongest chick in that first batch drowned in the waterer cause apparently it got its head stuck in there. Horrible!
Our second batch is doing really well, though, they’re all about a week old now and just as cute as can be. So glad we have a few chicks to carry on the legacy of Nugget!
There are still a few eggs in the incubator, but we’re pretty sure if they were good they’d have hatched by now. We’ll leave them in there a few more days just to make sure.
All the other chickens are doing well. We’re getting about 4-5 eggs a day (not bad from 9 chickens), and that’s even without using any lights to extend their hours of “daylight,” which will increase egg production.
That’s all for now!
