First IRN babies have hatched for 2011!

Post by pinkdevil » Sun Sep 04, 2011 10:32 pm

After what seemed like FOREVER, 3 little chickies have made their way into the world over the weekend.
Mum is a first timer and doing great, dad is a seasoned hand at this and seems to be quite proud after a few years being child free.
Here are the babies...

Thanks everyone.

Still a few more hens on eggs yet so hoping for a few bubbies this year. :)
I even have one first timer hen (sister to the mum of these bubs) who has no partner yet she has laid eggs. :shock:

Jasper (lutino IRN) has finally had a successful clutch of chicks. First 2 hatched yesterday (11 Sept) and the 3rd today. 2 have red eyes and if all is correct with the genetics I was told the male was, the 2 red eyes should be male pallidinos. :D

And my first hold of chickie #3

They are looking good.

When do you pair them up and put the nest boxes in?

Thanks Shirleybird and Rod038.

I leave the nestboxes in & the pairs together all year round. I find sometimes in the middle of summer a couple of the ringies use the nests during the day, maybe to escape the heat?

(u just reminded me of my budgie. it can imitate a sniffing sound i make when i cry. and when i DO cry, it happily mimics me)
(its kinda anoying... to be mocked like that... but i still find myself smiling inspite of it all...) :roll:

heres a quotation espacially for u: :mrgreen:

""dont cry because its over,
but smile because it happened!"" :idea:

i hope your kids find wonderfull homes! (i wish i could get one... if only i could teleport...) :?
(u dont happen to ship them feather-packets-of-joy do u?)

hahaha evaleen. :D Most have gone to their new homes now, still have a couple looking for homes since the people who asked me about them never contacted me back.

Thanks sheena and Dan. :)

I did end up keeping one though :roll: ...the pallid hen, her name is 'Lacey'. I just couldn't part with her and when Shane said she is very pretty, why not keep her then, I just couldn't let that opportunity pass by. :lol:

Here is my newest member to the household, Lacey.
