Spring Is In The Air!!!!

One little Broody hen!! She is setting on 3 eggs one rolled out.
Her protector!!! He paced in front of her the whole time I was in there.

The ducks taking in some sun......
The geese... They must be getting close to laying because they was warning us not to get to close!!
Pigs got a little warm today and made a wallow with their water tub!!

So I sprayed them some and they loved it and started rubbing on everything!!
She rubbed a little and then started chewing on the stick...

Mmmmmm good Stuff!

A good scratching post!!!

Future Milkers of the Farm!!!

This is one good Momma! She is a Katahdin ewe and had twin boys. She kept her condition plus had 2 healthy fat babies.
Nap time is a wonderful thing!

I just found your blog through a comment that you left on mine. What a delight! I'm going to add you to my blog roll.

Great photos. Your pigs are TOO cute! And the baby goats....I gotta say, I do think that kids are about the most adorable babies on any farm!

Hey, give that little hen some more eggs! How long has she had those? Must be time! Good to hear, -21 days to new babies! :)

Them are some silky lookin' pigs too. Coming out of winter & they've got a gloss on them! :)
But, they're rubbing on the trees. :(

Only 5 ducks. :(
But, the geese'll be laying soon?! :)

2 very good Katahdin moms... GREAT!!! :)
