I finally got a chance last night to handle my flock, check leg bands, assign more legbands to those that had lost theirs or hadn't earned one yet, check for winter bugs~none at all, measure abdominal and pelvic spacing, etc. Forgot to take my scale up and weigh them all but really only care about the weight of the breeders I've chosen and will check those later.
Was pleased to have one returning breeder and two new ones. Hormones be a risin', folks, and it won't be long until it's time to have chicks running the land again. Eggs will flow, feed consumption goes down, life is GOOD.
Weather was warm and balmy last night, with every star out...felt like spring but didn't smell like it, you know?
Named my two new breeders~Clairee and Truvy. Their mama, Beulah Mae, will be my only returning breeder from last year.
Y'all getting excited for spring?
