I love these silly animals. Look at Buttons risking life and limb trying to reach a weed!
I love the morning ritual of milking. Because the mama goats are with the babies, I don't have to milk at night. I get exactly a quart every morning and it's been perfect. After they are milked I let the babies out to nurse.
The *kids* are old enough to sell, but there's no way. They're too much fun right now.
The eggs are still great to have. It never gets old for me.
We have a Blue Copper mix above. She has such beautiful gray feathers, and her eggs are dark brown.
Two birds have gone broody. Hopefully by this Wednesday something will hatch. I have to try to find some more fertile eggs to put under Snowfluff, the Silkie on the right. A lot of the better egg laying hens have terrible broody instincts, but the bantams seems determined to hatch something this summer.
I love trying new foods, cooking, and gardening. I hope to share these experiences on this site. Thanks for taking a look!
