I have so many things to talk about some really good, some not so good, and some down right yucky. Watching this baby do the happy food dance over her breakfast I think is he best thing Ive seen in the last week though.
My handsome farmer had gallbladder surgery a week ago yesterday and after complications is still laid up but we arent going to talk about that just yet. I have like 4 blogs planned and that wasnt on the list since it was routine in and out maybe a few days out of commission, but thats not what happened but that story has to get in line, even if it goes along with the title with half a dozen other things.
Really dont know what I want to write about at this point so brief overview of the happenings this week and later Ill break it all down. Sounds easy but its hard to not just ramble when I get going! Here we go…
Stuffings chicks hatched! We have 6 new babies! 3 yellow 2 black and 1 little silver chick! They are a week old today and she is a great mother super proud and very protective. I can file this under the catagory ” Things I have learned about Cochins”! Most everything can be a learning experience if you let it.
The ducks have gotten huge but still not feathered and still brooder bound much to their unhappiness. Every time I walk by they yell “let us out!”. I have no idea what duckie business they need to attend to but they will have to wait.
Garnet the surprise Im having babies goat kept the surprises going by having them a week early. We arent sure if that was stress induced from us being away from the homestead so much, if she was simply too full, or if someone bumped her just right. She had 3 only 1 is alive now, super tiny and not terribly strong, but wants to live.
Sapphire is the babies name. She got her first antibotic shot this morning for what I believe is the start of pneumonia. At birth if they breathe in some of that fluid it can lead to pneumonia, Garnet didnt want to mom and didnt clean her kidds so I feel like thats what happened.
Next up is Daffy who I really hope has an easy birth and strong babies. She usually does really well by herself but I dont want to go to far away from the homestead just in case. Im getting excited for all the milk she makes more than enough to feed her kids and for the family to have some every day!
Thanks for following along hopefully next time Ill be more together (maybe who knows).
Love & Light yall!
