Hi guys Have had an incredibly busy week! Hope everyone is well and safe from all this weather. Welcome to anyone joining our thread!
Managed to step on a nail last night during all this nasty weather. Some updates happening here...
Sugar kidded, ~TWINS~ and blessed us with our first buckling, already spoken for. His name will be Blaze or Star, future owners are undecided lol. Also a doeling! He will leave when weaned. During the birth, I discovered a broody duck in the goat house, with a mountain of eggs, hatching! So I have 21 muscovy ducklings totally unexpected! This is a hen I thought was missing, she was tucked far under the sleeping platform my goats have in their shed.
Guinea keets galore, and am seeing an unusual chocolate color in the keets. 15 left today and can't wait to see how they look as adults. They are coming from a pearl cock over lavender hen. Going to look up color genetics later.
Still have broody turkeys arrgh! I gave my MW hens duck eggs to hatch. Took away the golf balls a long time ago. Didn't work! Taking them off the nest, nope. Confining in a crate, nope. My bourbons have eggs due, hoping for a hatch soon.
Off to catch up on our thread!
