Uhm I know I like just ate an hour ago...but plleeeaaseee
Klondike is developing quite the bum...
My does (rabbits) are due in about 3-7 days. Give or take. I'm fairly certain both are pregnant, as their bellies are like small soft balls underneath them, where previously they were just nice sleek stream lined girls. I'm so excited by the prospect of both rabbit kits to put in the grow out to fill our freezers with another source of meat, and babies to be pets and give me a little extra income potential at the swap meets this year. The husband and I are trying very very hard to get a good base of livestock diversity, Hence our other new critters.
For some reason the girls will only use these 2 boxes, out of 10 :/
Thursday night I got a private message on facebook, from a friend, about another wonderful sheep and dog handler/breeder, who had a pair of bum ram lambs available. So now in a "jug" in the pen with my Clun Forest-Border Leichester crosses are a pair of WONDERFUL Scottish Black Face rams. We are planning to get a few bred ewes this fall from the same lady, as she plans to reduce her flock, and well the husband fell right in love with her boys and girls. If we had the money and space we'd buy a lot more than just a handful!
One of the Turkens I bought Al, LOVING this chick!
Bunch of babes, see how much bigger the Cornish (whites) are?
Easter Egger chick, such pretties!
Cornish-Rock chick. Developing so well for us!
For now back out to work in the barn while the Princess of Screams naps...for what is never long enough :)
