MORE HOT OFF THE PRESS!
Yesterday's collection was successful, BUT......
Yesterday's collection went well and the official count is 330,992 eggs collected. This brings the total YTD to just over 1,335,000!
There was evidently some significant wind up that way in the past two or three days as they found the weir almost full of leaves. This slowed the collection process initially. They also found they still had significant numbers of green hens. They went through about 2,200 hens to get 600, releasing the 1,600 not yet ready for spawning.
Part of trying to relate the VERY LATEST news is being occasionally less than 100% accurate. As soon as I receive "locked up & signed in ink" confirmation of what follows, I'll let you know.
Right now, it looks like there will be another collection next week! They are trying to reach their 1.5 million target and need another 165,000 eggs to get there. This will be a "small" collection and will probably take place at the same location next week, maybe Tuesday.
So there it is. I should get a call within hours. Stay tuned...and THANKS!
