We have had a bit of a mis-start. Melanie thought today was the date to "set a Hen" according to Moon Sign. So she tucked the assumed to be fertile eggs underneath Lacey in the Brooder House. After double-checking the calendar, she discovered the date was April 14, not April 12. So she removed the eggs, replacing them with the eggs which we are less certain about fertility. Our apologies, Lacey!
Today was Easter Sunday. After all those years of loving those yellow marshmallow chicks in my Easter basket, I had no idea that some day I would be involved in an initiative intending to produce baby Peeps. Marshmallow chicks were easier to manage. These real ones present a real learning curve.
