One of my Ameraucanas and a Banty sharing a nest.
My hillbilliness just knows no end!Lol
Hey it works! Keeps the sun and
the rain off as long as it not crazy rain.
Didn't cost me a penny!
Moses and Jack have learned to respect the electric fence...
They are loving their new found freedom!lol
They go back to their pen at night and are only out when we are home.
Moses stays way back. Jack has hit the fence a few times.
They are in an opposite paddock that the girls are in.
Ethel enjoying the sunshine!
Nothing like a nap in the warm sunshine.
Pretty sure she is bred for the middle of August.
Will be the first time we have had a kidding then.Bakerscreek festival was very wet and chilly! It was not a good day for it and Monday I don't think got any better. But there were a lot of people there. Some had drove quite the distance only to be greeted by a wet and chilly Missouri Spring day! Speaking of the weather I cannot believe that they have now intentionally Flooded 130,000 acres of farmland and homes! Those people,their homes and livelihood now flooded..
We have gotten a lot things done around here now that the sun is shining! We planted Lavender, Rosemary, Feverfew,Sage and Comfrey planted today. Started mowing the yard its going to be a process. Most of it still has standing water. So as it dries out we are mowing. I also got my potatoes mulched again. They are growing like crazy!
Goats are doing better now that they can get out on the pasture. Its always a good thing!.. Milk production has been down since they are stuck in the barn because goats melt in the rain ya know? They had plenty of hay but they prefer the grass. Cant say that I blame them! I am happy that Moses and Jack respect the electric fence and they don't try to get in with the girls. That may change about the end of August when the goat girls start coming in heat. But for now its good.. When Candice went out to put them back, they ran past her to their pen and waited to be let back in. So the boys don't have to live on hay year around!! We have plenty of grass right now. I need to divide the back pasture into at least 2 paddocks but that will have to wait.
Getting ready to go introduce the little chickies to the big pen. We will shut off the light and lock everyone up for the night. But the younger ones are bigger than some of the banties already. The mix breed ones I got from Brenda are really pretty. The Cuckoo Marans are just plain black nothing real interesting....
So Good night everyone!!
