Today we started to Incubate 3 eggs so HOPEFULLY, In about 21 days, we will have little chicks...
Here is some info on incubation!:
First off, eggs will normally hatch in around 21 days, sometimes they could hatch a day or 2 early or late.Secondly, eggs need to be placed in the incubator a week or less after being laid.(We put them in a few hours after being laid:)!)An ideal temperature for a hens egg to hatch should be around 37.5 °C but 35.°C to 40.5°Cis OK! You NEED to turn the eggs about 3 times a day to prevent the embryo sticking to the inside of the egg shell!DO NOT turn the eggs after the 18th day!We've 4 chickens of our own, 3 hens and 1 cockerel so the eggs were incubating are from our own hens which in my case makes it even more exiting! Our cockerel is a Light Sussex, one of our hens is a White Leghorn, another one is a Bluebell, and the last one is a Speckeldy so we don't know what we will come out with!
Yesterday I had to get up way too early to go to York. 07:00-08:15 We get up, get dressed, get out. A 35 minute drive later we get to the train station, where we wait for 10 minutes trying to figure out where our train is. We finally get in York and then we wonder around a park feeding squirrels by hand with some monkey nuts that a lady gave us, (I ended up eating to rest of the monkey nuts).
We go to our first museum, Yorkshire museum, wasn't overly interesting (wasn't at all interesting) so... moving on. York Castle museum was a bit better, If it wasn't for the 55 steps leading up to the the actual castle and then realising we can't get in without a pass it may have actually been a nice experience. We took a break and went back to the park to feed more squirrels... It was then that I was crowned Queen of The Pigeons.
Yeah... that was fun, we had to go wash our hands though. Last and definitely least, York railway museum. It was our third time there so I got pretty b…
The Krampus is a German creature who is basically the opposite of Santa, actually he's classed as a demonic Santa! Santa rewards good children with presents while Krampus punishes the naughty ones. On the 5th of December, at night (known a Krampus night/Krampusnacht) the hairy Half-goat Half-DEMON will appear on the streets taking the naughty children and EATING THEM (that went from 1-100 very fast). It came around in Germany in the 1600's but it's believed to be older than "Jesus" (and also my grandad, but I know that's not true 😏)!
