    She was called a hoender haan by my vet. Henrooster. Sometimes mom just doesnt keep the egg warm enough and while it developes it gets confused. Males and females are determined by rolles and heat.

    Hens sometimes too will start crowing in the absence of a rooster in the flock. We had that happen at our place when we were without a rooster for a while. She sure did sound funny. :rolleyes: We also think we must have had an intersex hen a while back. She was HUGE and had a huge comb, pin feather and spurs. Laid great big eggs too. She died very suddenly. It makes me wonder if she had some hormonal imbalance due to a tumor or something.

    Liefie died from the laming desease they can get. The vet said that she had an imbalance too. But they can do both and look like both. I found out later that they dont really live beyond 2 years

    lol I for once wanted girls this year to restock my herd and for once girls are behind so I don’t think I would help it much lol

    So I have SUPER exciting news to share! As I mentioned I tried to AI jasmine, 15 days later I thought she was in heat so tossed her in with Sonny. I literally just tossed her in with him and didn’t pay any attention to what happened. I figured If she wasn’t really in heat no big deal I would catch her on the next heat.
    Yesterday I ultrasounded her to get a idea If sonny is any idea. Well she is bred but she has a ton of cotyledons. Usually those don’t show up until after 60 days. I double checked with ultrasound group and they confirmed not before 60 days. If she took for the AI she would be 63 days. If sonny bred her she would have been 48 days. So I am 95% sure she took for the AI! Basically I’m sure she has AI babies but I won’t be surprised if she has kids on the later date......just a little sad lol so here is jasmines most likely baby daddy

    We owned Bullseye! He was a great buck. We still have several direct kids and grandkids. His first black dappled son turns 5 years old in March.

    Hope your doe took! You’ll love the kids.

    CountryLineAcres yes! I remember you telling me that. I only got a few straws from Justin so I had to really debate even pulling one of his straws out. I never really hold my breath when I AI, although I guess I need to stop doing that since I’m having really good beginners luck lol I will defiantly keep you guys posted on how it turns out! So fingers crossed

    Well after a crazy morning cammie had 3 small underdeveloped babies and 2 normal healthy babies. No clue what was up with that just very thrilled with live kids after the first tiny baby was born, I figured she would only have DOA kids. I’m waiting to see if she ends up having 2 placentas and maybe she was bred twice or if maybe her body couldn’t support 5. I’ll get better pics but here is her buck and doeling IMG_4161.jpg

    So are you saying it was possible she was bred on two different dates or...? Glad they are alive!
