Been Busy..... Wheewww

Well we have new animals!! LOL Like we need anymore but we have to have a few more to complete the menagerie! So we now have rabbits... New Zealand and California crosses for meat. They are HUGE especially compared to my Youngest DD's little hotot dwarf!! LOL This is one of the Does. She is a 3 yr old a little old but still young enough to raise a few litters. They dont have names yet. They lack a lot of personality so kind of hard to name them!! Tehy all basically look like her....

Now On to the new pig... He is young he wont be 8 weeks till Wednesday. He is a little crabby too! LOL But he was taken from momma! He is fussing and growling at us. But he is cute!!! He will be used to breed the red wattle/Tamworth cross we have already.


Next is the lamb I couldn't resist putting new pictures up. He likes to be held just not caught.LOL momma is still not real sure of us but does tolerate us holding baby boy.. That's him at the top too..


We are butchering chickens Monday! Yeah!! LOL It will be so fun!! hmmm maybe I should add pics of how we butcher.. We don't currently pluck just skin and use them like that. Anyways that's all I have for now.. Have a good weekend all..

Lamby boy is so cute! The lambs I got pix of during the summer were ugly, kinda cute but had dark circled, buggy eyes. But, this boy is very cute! Still got those wobbly legs. Is he playing yet? They're so cute when they play. Kinda sad when they have to play by themselves, or w/ an imaginary playmate. Hopefully soon there'll be some playmates for him. I guess he's much like his mom in the contact thing. Isn't she one that wouldn't let you catch her, but when you did, she just laid down & submitted?

Neither that wabbit, nor that little piggie looks too very happy. Hopefully they'll come to realize that it could be worse. I'm sure they'll all calm down & get comfortable. If the rabbits are so big & your daughters are so small... do you have big enough cages?
