Sadly…

…our little ladies didn’t make it.  They tried valiantly but just couldn’t.  We were very sad and have been told we got a batch of eggs from a weak rooster.  A rooster who couldn’t do his job and apparently ‘shot some blanks’ and some that were damaged.  Both of our little ladies had some issues structurally when we performed an autopsy of sorts.  I don’t want to show the pictures of them trying to hatch because knowing they died, well, I just don’t want to show them.

One a happier note a new batch arrives today!  We are looking forward to trying again and have been assured this rooster is virile and young and strong and able to fertilize eggs.

The kids are back at school, Lee has moved on and the house is quiet once again.  Seems odd to be at the beginning of August with an empty house but it is what it is.  Now I organize and clean the effects of  summer on my home….
