Jr's host/hatch out little Pheasant Birdies!
"We had 34 eggs that were incubated. They started peeping on Sunday, May 5. By Tuesday evening 1 chick had hatched. We divided up the eggs and took 19 to the Board of Directors meeting (it was meant to be 20 but in the excitement we miscounted) on Tuesday. During the BOD two chicks hatched. We made up 3 brooding set-ups for a few Juniors (Holly, Elizabeth, and David/Jocelyn) and their families to take home and share in the experience. Of our 34 eggs we ended up having about 15 hatch out, pretty good for a first try. We plan to hold the chicks at each Juniors house until Mother’s Day evening, when we will transfer them to the Pheasant coop.
"Here’s a time lapse of the pheasant eggs we hatched.
One Sunday afternoon, the Juniors got together and built 7 Duck boxes and about a dozen Blue Bird boxes in the lower level of the clubhouse. These will be placed in various locations, including several of our Save Our Streams, stream restoration projects!
The Limestone Springs fishing trip was a great time. Six Juniors made the annual trek to Lebanon to fish and visit Middle Creek. Each Junior caught their limit and took home some great trout fillets. At Middle Creek we attend a seminar on cooking duck, shot muzzleloaders, operated the hoses of a Fire Brush tanker and called for ducks
