18 month check

This little tank is 18 months!  He’s off the charts both in weight and height. 

33.5 lbs

The kids and I spent the week at the lake with cousins and Grandma and papa. It was fun but exhausting!

Three little chicks!

The kids, Indy, and I were at my sisters for a couple of days.  We had a blast!

And we got home to some new chicks!  How fun!  

Daughter waved at them. 

There was one extra egg in there so I decided to check it. Yep, it had developed almost completely. I wonder if Weasley has kept sitting on it, would it have lived?

We’ve got chicks!

Mat went to collect eggs tonight and Weasley was particularly peeved about it. She pecked at his hand. I thought maybe it was because she doesn’t know him as well as me, or else the eggs were starting to hatch. They’re starting!  

Woot woot!  Come on chickies!

And then there were 9

Weasley is still plenty broody. But now there are only 9 fertilized eggs. Not sure what happened to the other 3?  Were they not growing?  Did the other hens move them?  Hmmmmm
