|Baby thinks this is all for him!|
|Eggs ready to get put on the heat.|
|A nice pastel pink...|
|Mashed Yolk on a dish.|
|Clyde giving it a "sniff"...|
|Gerty "sniffing" it before grabbing it!|
I had a grand time watching them grab the bigger pieces of yolk and run around cashing whoever had a piece! And all the happy chick noises! I did end up taking away the yolk after they ate about half of it though...they had stuffed themselves so much! Their little crops looked like they couldn't hold any more! Also, they had been out from under the heat lamp for a while (15-20 minutes) and they were starting to act cold. Gertrude was shivering! SO back in the brooder they went and I put the leftover yolk/grit/feed mix in a sandwich baggy for another day (I'll add more grit and some warm water to it next time).
|Gerty has found she really likes the camera on my cell phone!|
Gertrude has a little poo issue going on...I don't really know if it's pasting up or not...but it's kinda gross at any rate. Clyde has a little every now and then, but Gerty's is really stuck in her fluff! Tomorrow I'll bring her upstairs and give her a bath and blow dry in my bathroom. She really does love the camera! Any time she sees the flash, she's right there to see what's going on! She also loves my freckles...but those she tries to eat, lol. Not only has she discovered the one on my hand (and my healing blood blister), but she went after one on my chest tonight! She also doesn't take no for an answer, lol. If I cover whatever freckle has caught her attention, she picks at something else to get me to move my hand/finger and then goes right back to whatever had her attention in the first place! Smart little chicken she is!
|Full crops and a clean, fresh jug of water!|
