Neighbors gave us a special clutch of eggs to place under a broody hen. First hen, Lucky, got bored I guess and abandoned the nest. Second hen, June, took over. We are anticipating hatching around 4-18-13 and hope the mother-swap doesn't affect the outcome. June is incubating 17 eggs. Any guesses on how many, if any, will hatch? I will see if I can conjur up prizes for the ones who guess the right number from 0 to 17:)
David had more kittens and in the usual place...a nest box. If you recall David and her brother Goliath were born in a nest box and this is the second time she has gone back there to birth her kittens. This time we have two. At first I thought there were three because one stretched out so far it looked like two. Thus it is named Longfellow. Looking for a name for the second. Any suggestions?
