Update- Stayin' Alive


Rainbows seem to be the theme lately.  So I thought I'd drop one in myself.  This one was taken right outside my back door a few weeks ago.  I was walking out the door to head off to work, and there it was.  Somehow I think the beauty of it was lost on the chickens and cats.  Everything has been going okay. Our visit with Robert was nice.  I didn't get any pics of us.  He took a couple with a disposable.  I will have to get him to send some in the mail.  We visited the  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.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Sorry you had trouble with the egg turner. Bummer! The white silkie sounds like a silly girl. Hope she is broody and hatches out the eggs. Maybe being a Mom will settle her down.
