But! After that she said only if we had a lot of land for it to run around on so it wouldn't eat all our stuff. I am now looking at realty sites. So how much does a kid go for anyways? :)

In reallity goats do NOT eat everything in site. They keep down weeds and brush. You do have to have a pen for them but thats a given isn't it? They love you like a dog does. Price depends on the breeder. This little guy would only go for $50. He is Nubian/Boar/ Nigerian dwarf cross. Not be very big.

Wow, so much excitement around here!

 

Fuzzybird, your new baby is so dang cute!  love.gif  

 

pdx2phx, did anything hatch from the remaining two eggs?  No Dos-ie or Tres-eanna?

 

Arizonachicken--  the wait is so long and exciting!  I hope she has a good hatch.  fl.gif  There are few things cuter than a broody caring for her chicks.  

 

Billiam, Awesome run!   

 

Puffycheeks, it looks like you have a full-on farm there!  Or is it a zoo?  

 

pimachickens, Good luck with George!  lau.gif

 

Mikey D, Congratulations on your impending induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Gallo,

 

Uno is doing well....eating, drinking and pooping!  

 

She did get a little chick 'rodeo' yesterday though that was a little scary.  She saw Momma's tasty looking little wattles and grabbed on tight....Momma was not pleased and whipped her head around a few times to shake Uno off before we could get  to her.  I had to actually grab the chick to get her to let go of mom's wattle....talk about grip strength!!  

Everyone is fine, but I see Uno eyeing the wattles from time to time still.....they kinda look like tasty little bacon bits, so I can understand why she wants some!  gig.gif

 

I haven't peeked under the other broody yet this morning.  I checked yesterday afternoon and I heard peeping from one of the eggs, but then I got paranoid that I was bothering her and so backed off.  I'm also really worried that I might have not put the egg back in the same exact position!  I'm pretty sure I did, but not 100% sure.....and so now I'm worried that I might have messed up.....I didn't know!  I was so shocked to hear the egg peeping....

 

I want to see if there's been any pipping.  Argh!  I am stressed about that little egg!  I suspect the other one won't hatch because it has had a hairline crack in it for quite a while, although it was still developing a week ago....so who knows.  I hope we have a Dos-ie at least and that I didn't mess up that other little chick's chances.......sad.png

NH, GLW,  2 EEs, buff Brahma, 3 OEGBs, 1 Modern Game, 8 Seramas and Serama/Banty mixes including Cujo the Stealth Roo and his son Duo, and 3 Serama chicks that hatched for Christmas....and another 3 on May 1.

..........plus FOUR eternally naughty Pacific Parrotlets.   caf.gif       Aaaand we now have Birmingham Rollers & babies.....

Holy Cow we have a lot of birds around here!!!   D.gif

I know what you mean about chicks grabbing onto mamma and taking the ride!  lau.gif   Last year my BA, with the fleshy tumor/tube over her eye, hatched a batch and the chicks were absolutely ruthless about biting on to it.  She'd shake her head wildly while the chicks held on until they went flying off!  All the while she'd be making this ferocious roaring sound.  It was quite a sight.  I hope you find another chick today!

Mikey,

 

DH and I have started calling Momma hen's wattles "mommy bacon".....as in:

 

 

"...Uno was jumping up as high as her little legs would take her, trying to get some more of that tasty mommy bacon!"

 

I know.....I know....we are weird gig.gif
