Well the weather is letting me on the computer for a bit so thought I would get pic's posted while I got the chance.
As some of you know we took a road trip last weekend to @jchny2000 to meet her and @Indyshent had a good visit, just wish it could have been longer but I had other things to do while in the area and I was running late as it was.
I got a beautiful little doe from Jchny and some good looking birds from indy. and my silkie chicks got a new home. Btw glad your happy with them.
We have named her Roadie, first goat ever that we drove more than 20 min. to get. We love her, she has the sweetest little face. She is already coming to me on her own to get a rub down, but she still walks way from others, DH is unhappy about that. But I'm the one home with them all the time and I feed, thts the big one.
She has picked the smaller of the 2 LGD's (Bear) to run to when something or someone scares her. They will even take naps together.. lol tried to get a pic of that but the neighbor dog came for a visit.
She makes her own toys to climb on ignoring all the toys made for that in the yard... lol But whatever makes her happy.
And Blackbeard is an unhappy camper... he hates this dang rain and he hates being away form the girls ( which will be his ) that he can see but cant touch.
The Partridge Rock we have named Bully for obvious reasons . We are hoping that once he gets his girls he will calm down. He refused to have his picture taken, they all came out one big blur, will try again at a latter date, maybe he will be in a better mood.
The Welsumers are the biggest chicken hit with DH, he picks them up and messes with them all the time. He makes over the hen like she is the most beautiful critter God ever made... lol But they don't like the flash on the camera.... going to have DH HOLD them this weekend ( if we catch a break in this rain ) and get a few pic's that way.
I cant wait to introduce them to their new friends and see what kind of babies I get out of Bully and my WR's.
My WR is still sitting and guarding her nest, I am going to have to put wielding gloves on and candle those eggs, they should have hatched ny now, they are 3 days past due today. If she don't have any good ones I think I will try and give her the 4 chicks I hatched yesterday and the day before. Yep that's right out of the 30 eggs I put in the incubator I got 4, have 5 but don't count on number 5 living.
I just don't get it I have read up on hatching and just cant get it right. This is the 2nd and LAST time. I'm just not meant to hatch my own eggs I guess.
@jchny2000 I still want those hatching eggs from you when you get them, I have a friend that has Much better luck than I, that's going to hatch them for me.
The forecast says more rain all the way up to next Thursday, I'm worried to death I am going to start losing birds with all this wetness and the gnats are so bad that I have gone through 2 bottles of Poultry Protector in a week and they are still bugging the birds. I feel so sorry for them. Our garden is dying out due to the rain. DH is very unhappy about that He loves his garden!!
Ridgett My rescue horse is looking better ( at least something is going right ).
Dang it now BYC is telling me my images are failing. oh well try again latter.
Hope everyone has a great day, see ya
