This last month has been a delightful. Our young chicks are growing out well. We ended up with about 75 of the little guys (estimating). All but the very last hatch (just 6 peeps) are out and on green pastures now.
The goats are doing very well and have become extremely friendly and needy. All four of them come running when we exit the house and when I enter their pen they all clamor for my attention. Ebony is very fond of me scratching behind her ears, on her neck and down her sides. Daisy thinks she is a lapdog and wants to be in my arms anytime I will allow it. Blossom is the most stand-offish but will also seek me out for pats and scratches when the other goats back off. Little Gossip is determined to find "treats" each time she sees me, and is not so much into the affection as the others but she is still not shy in the least.
