Whew! I wasn’t sure these eggs would hatch.
I’m afraid our temperature and humidity electronic gauges were not reading correctly in the hatcher. When I put an old fashioned thermometer in there, the numbers were way off.
I probably lost some of them, but at least these two came into the world. I didn’t incubate too many, but I’ll try to hatch more after my company leaves so I can start collecting eggs again instead of eating them.
They’re supposed to be the pure white Ameraucanas I bought last year, but they don’t look too white right now.
I’ve got a birthday tomorrow and some relatives popping in for a couple of days so I’ll be on and off the net for the rest of the week. Just thought I’d leave you with a picture of these two infants. Wish me luck that the rest will hatch. They’re pipping, but they’ve been slow to come out into the world.
We are in full blown Spring down here. Everything is blooming and I’ve been planting beds as fast as I can. I should’ve started my tomatoes and peppers a couple of weeks earlier, but other than that everything is going according to plan.
For my birthday this year, I’d like a couple more blueberry bushes (because really, who couldn’t use more blueberry bushes) and maybe some new clothes. I haven’t shopped for clothing in YEARS! Plants, on the other hand, are an obsession. I’d rather buy plants than clothes. Unfortunately, my clothes are looking a bit raggedy even for me, so it’s time.
Where would you rather spend your money? Is it spring by you yet?
