I have three hens sitting on eggs. At first, I was going to remove them and throw the eggs away, because I am sure they have been sitting on them longer than 21 days and are not going to hatch. Once I removed them, however, I felt bad and decided to give them a little more time, so I cleaned out the boxes and gave each hen nine eggs back. I don't know if they are adding to them, but now I can count every few days to see. If they are laying more on the pile, I'm not sure how to know which ones are old and need to be removed!
Here's our indoor cat, Lucy, who all of a sudden got brave and headed out with us today. Cats are strange animals!
After our chicken and garden progress, we headed to the Amish market today. We bought the plants I needed for my garden bed, lots of produce and eight baby chicks - four silkies and four polish. Once I got home and got them settled, it was raining and I didn't take a picture of them, but I will tomorrow.
I did get a produce picture however! We had home-made, whole-grain blueberry waffles with
pineapple, cantaloupe and honey-dew. I had my heart set on watermelon but they were still $10 each; at that price, my heart can wait.
My little ones dug in and yes, Elijah occasionally still sits on the table.
