Update- Stayin' Alive
North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. It's right on the beach near Atlantic Beach. We really enjoyed that. That evening we stopped and bought some fresh shrimp and lump crab meat (real deal) and had fried fish and shrimp and crab dip at home. It was awesome. Chickens are all doing well. Something happened to the egg turner and out of 44 eggs we only had one single egg hatch. How sad is that!! We were soooo disappointed. I'm really hoping it's a hen. I do have a white silkie hen that is finally sitting on eggs. Her first few eggs she just kicked around. She won't lay in her little nest box I made. She just layed them on the ground. So I put down so straw and put a couple of bricks to make a nest-like place for her. She ate two of the eggs, and I was afraid she wouldn't sit on the others. But I think she has seven eggs under her now. Hopefully they will hatch. I'd love some fuzzy bottoms. Still looking for a camera. Soon, I hope.
