And Now, I'm Spent

This is officially the last clutch of the season.

And it is not super awesome, but not super sucky, like I had expected. 

I felt slugs. I got slugs. 

But I got more "eggs" than I thought. I had palpated seven, and I got nine. 
Granted, only five of them are viable (aka with veins), but its all good. This gal can lay!
Can't be mad at that.

Pied male to my second Possible Het Pied female (sister to the other one who laid the day before).

The boob eggs are slugs, and the obvious slug (on the bottom) is a slug, but there are good eggs in there!

How can I tell which are good and which aren't, you ask?

Well, it's called Candling.

Candling is when you put a flashlight to the egg and look for veins. The eggs without veins are not viable, aka slugs. 

So there you go. I will see if I can get Joel to help me get some photos of candling for the blog, as well as a few other photos. 

I've finished updating the available page, with photos!!

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Have a fantastic day, my friends.

Jackie Chlorhexidine is a Vet grade cleaner and antibacterial. It is used to do everything from clean up a small mess to being used to clean up a wound on a animal. I love the stuff.
