Today was the first day of deer season. We all went out and 1 by 1 headed back to Nana's house to warm homemade cinnamon rolls and hot coffee!! LOL its was just to much temptation with the weather. It rained alittle and snowed/sleeted too. The wind was blowing hard and cold.. All the deer were in hiding and out of sight due to the wind. So no luck today. Hubby will go back out tomorrow and he has Monday off too. The hazy look to the pic is the snowy sleet that came down. We lost 2 silkie hens last night. I had moved the chickens down to the barn and I didnt secure the nesting box enough and the only thing I can figure out is that they all tried to roost on the front and it got top heavy. It smashed them and of course it would be 2 of the hens!! A white one and a black one. Poor little darlins!! Since I have moved them I am getting 15-18 eggs a day. A few cant get it into their little brains that the food and shelter is now in the barn... lol They keep heading back up and roosting on the corral fence. I hope they are at least laying their eggs in the barn!!
I have a goat getting close to baby time. She has an udder. The big thing is her ligaments are loosening and getting squishy. The muscles around her tail are getting ready for birth they loosen and drop and make it ready to be able to birth the babies. Her name is Ethel and she gave me twins on her first kidding. A beautiful little girl we named Splashy and I wish we had kept and she had a twin brother named Shrimp. She was a little young when she had her first babies but she was an excellent momma and recovered very well. She is a Boer/Nubian cross and I just love her spots. This is her momma is Dottie. She is Black with white spots. Ethel has been bred to a Kiko buck and I cant wait to see what her babies look like. Moss in the woods... Have a good night all!
