Battle of the eggs!!


Guess our duck and one of our pullets are having a largest egg battle! I thought our duck egg was pretty big, then we got a huge brown egg. It's not as round as the duck egg, but it's every bit as long!! Both of them when  I look at them make me hurt!!!

Ex large duck egg


Our largest duck egg yet!!! The last large duck egg we gave to sil kaye. It was a double yoker.  The brown egg is pretty large, it's about 2 and a half inches, and the duck egg is every bit 3 inches. We'll just wait and see how many yolks this one has. Our oldest white duck lays an egg a day, unless she lays one like this, then she'll skip a day. I don't blame her a bit!!

Maran chick???


This is our latest chick we hatched,it's twenty days old. Suppose to be a cuckoo maran, but I don't think so. We'll wait and see what it is when it gets it's feathers.

Brown leghorn

Here is a pic of our brown leghorn pullet that has a crooked beak and only has one eye. She is doing great right now. I have her with  supposedly a maran chick. I give her vitamins in her water quite a bit, maybe that will help. Gonna let her out with the rest of our chickens when she gets some size on her.

NEW RABBIT

We had to get another rabbit because of our over active male rabbit. I don't think it did much good though!!

First quail egg

We got our first quail egg today, comparing it to a duck egg. I don't know what we'll do with one egg though!! I had to seperate 5 males because they were fighting, poking each others eyes out and other stuff. We have 50 + eggs in the incubator that should hatch next week. My marans didn't hatch very well, 2 hatched and one died right after hatching. The one is doing fine and I have it in the pen with our one eyed brown leghorn pullet.
