I just switched over to wordpress so I apologize for anything wonky.
If you notice something *off* please let me know!
The part of hatching that takes the longest is from the initial ‘pip’ to when they break the shell all the way around. After than it goes pretty quickly. There is a lot of flailing and some nasty looking membranes. All six of these eggs hatched and they were moved out to the barn earlier this week. If all goes well we should have some turkeys hatching next week and we needed the tub.

Summer Blog Challenge – Nicknames:
Beans – My dad’s parents sometimes me that because I used to play with a jar of beans
Rosie – My dad’s father calls me that because my middle name is Rose
Quack – Long story but that’s what Mike calls me (it’s a reference to ducks)
The two mullberry trees (here when we moved in!) are covered in little spiky baby mulberies
The new currant bushes have a few flowers here and there. I’m making some deer-deterring cages later this week and I’ll be sharing them soon.
Make sure you stop back tomorrow! Party goes live at 4 pm EST
Next time you do something that makes your significant other ask what the heck you were thinking, all you need to do is say:
At least I didn’t put cows on our lawn.
In my defense, most of the fence was already there when we moved in.
AND it’s really overgrown.
AND it’s to wet to mow.
AND gas is expensive.
AND I’m terrified of our lawn mower
Really. It was the right thing to do
