First the good news, we are at about 14 chicks in the incubator. The double yolk egg continues to try to hatch. On one end there is a chicken trying to get out - this is better than I expected. On the other end we can't tell what is going on as the 14 chicks that are out of their eggs are moving around and the double yolk egg is rolling around. We do, however, have the very real possibility of a pair of live chickens coming out of the same egg. Not a miracle, but at least an uncommon occurrence.
The bad news is that Fred the Goat gave in to Floppy Kid Syndrome today, throwing off his mortal coil around 12:45 p.m. There was a viewing until around 1:30 p.m. at which time a brief, grave side service was held with the Right Reverend Dad officiating. The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to goatworld.com in memory of Fred the Goat.
