Flock Focus Friday, 3/6/15

Beautiful photos of your chickens in snow. Is it really that snowy still where you live? Wow! I’m using a borrowed Brinsea incubator right now for a clutch of Jersey Buff turkey eggs. Tomorrow (day 10) we’ll candle. The USPS did not take very good care of our egg package. About 1/3 were cracked when we took them out of the box. 🙁 No broken membraines though, so we sealed up the cracks with candle wax. Now we hope for the best.
