We had a little bantam white cochin rooster that was being too rough on our young group. So I separated him in a kennel in the garage. Well my son David fell in love with him and has taken him on as a pet. His name is Pee Wee. He is a friendly little rooster and we are often carrying him around the house. =},

It has been really busy here at our little farm. We are collecting lots of eggs. Sometimes up to 30 a day! I am saving most of my purebred eggs to hatch and sell the babies. But I had to reduce the amount I was saving because my incubator got full! Some exciting news is that one of my duck hens is laying an egg every day! They look fertile and I am going to incubate them. Sadly the 2 sebbie goose eggs did not turn out to be fertile. My incubator now has 123 eggs in it (plumb full!) so I had to move the 85 quail eggs into the hatcher a few days early. They go into lockdown tomorrow.
