Husband and I: both tired, both kind of in a bit of excitability about which direction to take with our tiny flock that works with our family situation.
Goats: They hate the rain and I figured out why they love the juniper. It concentrates copper and some other minerals in this type of acidic soil and basically serves as a natural mineral supplement. Pretty handy husbandry tip!
Sheep: Three look hefty and one looks a little thin, but the thin one was the breeder favorite for conformation and fleece production. They’ve been here a week or so and seem to be doing ok. Relaxed, and the skinny one started coming up to me today.
Ducks: TWO EGGS IN ONE DAY FINALLY. They are making it happen! It’s just not an instant leap into an egg a day per duck as we kind of hoped. Well, learning curves can be steep.
Kids: Chicken pox. Sucks. That is all.
