Brian, oh yes, I know I have done that, collected eggs from under a broody hen, last summer, didn't realize which one was the broody one. That was when my Sister was doing more of the chickenyard stuff and I was more doing other stuff. Thank my lucky stars these were eggs that we ate, not sold, (now that was a gross one, let me tell ya.....). Good that you were able to get up and give than hen eggs instead of air that she was sitting one, that would certainly have made her happy. I have pictures of the Muscovys now, the first clutch (is it called a clutch with ducks, hee, hee). I will get them on the forum soon, just been so ding dang busy!!! They are almost full grown and feathered out beautifully and man I love how different all the colours are. I will post pictures soon. One is pure white (the only duck), one is pure white with a little black on his head (all the others are drakes, good for the oven for surely). The others are beautiful colours.
That Menier's disease sounds like a real nasty. It is chronic with you? What causes it to develop. I am not being nosey (or maybe I am, don't want to delve into your personal life, hee, hee), but I need to know. Some things intrigue me and this is one of them.....tell me more. Have that beautiful day as yours, love our life that is ours, and love this earth that is ours too. Cindi
