3 out of 6 hatched, however, I suspect the eggs from some of the other hens either weren't fertile, or were jiggled around, as all 6 hens insist on using the same nesting container and there's a discrepancy with whose turn it is next. 3 is enough for a cold weather hatch though as no one will be left in the cold and it won't be too stressful for a first time hen :). Mrs Wyandotte was nameless but from now on she's called Mumma, as none of the other hens go broody.
Our trip that day was rainy and cold and we collected two machines from 350km away. PC is pleased with the price he paid and is always glad to have me travel with him, especially when the drive is boring because of rain, as it's easy to become weary just driving along a highway. I have neglected to take photos of the bandsaw and the lathe but there will be some in the future when they are used.
After a day at home we were off again, on Sunday, travelling the same route but the weather was lovely apart from some fog early in the day.
|20 mins from home|
|2.5hrs from home|
|15 mins from destination and these tunnels give me the heebie jeebies!|
|My favourite roadside resting stop.|
Another lovely day for the remainder of the trip home so I took a few pictures to pass the time.
The first two pics are taken 30 minutes from home.
This one is 15 minutes from home...
and as you follow the turn in the tarmac road we are 5 mins away and on the edge of the village.
This is the reason for the trip and PC already has plans for some items he'd like to make for the workshop and the house. He couldn't wait to unload it, clean the old sawdust off it, and ensure it ran well!
Lol, boys and their toys! I'm sure I can suggest a few jobs for him to use them for, in the future, when he has completed his immediate plans :P.
