Where has all the time gone!!!??? Seems like is was only September then we took a hyper jump to Christmas! It’s been a whirl wind around here, but now things are slowing down and getting back to whatever normal will be for this year.
I’m hoping to do a few posts this week to just get some recipes on here, but no guarantees! I’m trying though. And do know, your not forgotten.
My last post was on November 10th! Geez! and was titled New Happenings in Buddy’s Flock, in that post I informed you that mamma Reds was again broody and since I didn’t have a rooster at that point in time, I had 2 friends donate fertile eggs to her on different days, I got 4 eggs from Pam and 5 eggs from Chrissie. The eggs I received from Pam all hatched, 1 hatched 1 day early and the chick didn’t survive 😦 The other 3 hatched as scheduled on November 25th, 2 days later mamma reds kicked the other 5 eggs out of the nest so there were no chicks there 😦
The 3 chicks that did hatch are doing great! Even with the cold and right now its bitter cold here in South Jersey.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to Prissy (Priscilla), Cornie (Cornucopia) and Pokie (Pocahontas)
Since this time, we’ve taken all the young roosters to auction, probably at least 9 of them. So now Fred has settled into being the patriarch of the hen house and the hens are accepting him as the head guy. He seems to be getting the hang of all his duties as a rooster and at this point in time has a harem of 18 hens.
So stay tuned for more updates on Buddy’s Flock.
