Starting from number six there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

THESE WERE ALL TOOK AT RUFFORD COUNTRY PARK NEAR WORKSOP LAST WEEKEND. LYNNE.

On Wednesday night there where ten Badgers feeding at the same time. As one went off to the left another one came out from the Sett. So it looks very much if there are still eleven Badgers in the Sett. The same number as last year.

Tomorrow we are going to a Poultry Show and Auction to hopefully buy a few Chickens. Most of our Holiday Guest ask if we have Chicken and do we have eggs for sale. It will be good for our Holiday Guests Children to be able to feed the Chicken and collect the eggs.

Today we had a incubator delivered so that we can produce some Turkeys and Geese. It is a fully automatic incubator that will incubate up to 190 Chicken eggs. Again it will be good for our Holiday Guests Children to be able to see the eggs hatching. We will also try to show some of the hatching on a webcam. We are having some fertile Turkey eggs delivered, hopefully next Tuesday, and I am trying to get some Goose eggs.

I have in the past incubated Ostrich eggs reckoned to be the hardest eggs to incubate, and was quite successful. That came about after paying someone to incubate our Ostrich eggs, he managed to give all the Birds that was getting on for nearly 100, Yolk Sac infection that caused them all to die. As you can imagine I was not best pleased. The person hatching them wasn’t best pleased either when I tipped out twenty that had died on his doorstep. The cause of the infection was because his hatcher was dirty. I was told what chemicals where used in cleaning hatchers before special cleaners were made. I never had a problem with the incubating or hatching.
