During the tragedy that struck, the Moose had the wherewithal to collect the remaining eggs and try and incubate them. Hoping we'd be able to hatch out some of the Hooligan's offspring. We were blessed with three small fluff balls on Sunday.
We stopped by after work tonight to check up on the new chickens (still haven't come up with a name to call the gang), and Corrie. All things are going well, the little ones that were picked on are healing up and getting very active. We have been waiting to get some eggs, and the transition on the hens caused them to stop laying for a few weeks. We fattened them up a bit, and were happy to find these waiting for us.
Now we won't be able to eat these, since we gave the entire group a dose of antibiotic to help clear up some sores that didn't look good and some coughing that had me concerned. But we have eggs! And in the nesting box too!
We really needed these shots in the arm! Thanks for sticking with this crazy blog! I really appreciate the comments and emails I get from so many of you.
