    Groundhog Attacks!

    Well, this is pathetic! I was bitten by a hamster on steroids! Yesterday I let the dogs into the yard and a commotion started. I ran out to see and something large fell off a low branch of a tree. Too big too be a squirrel. What the? And there it is a groundhog circling, defending itself...

    Neighbor is giving us a bottle calf, he's a jersey mix, he's been on momma a few days. I've not bottle fed a calf since my youth and when you do it then, with someone else in charge - you usually miss all the OTHER things that go with raising something. I've wanted to try a bottle calf for a...

    Ah the horns of a Dilemma...

    Hatching from your own eggs is good. Really rewarding. I enjoy it. Problem. I hatched some mixed eggs from the unsegregated flock over this fall. And I have fallen squarely on the horns of a dilemma. Of one of the last hatches, I'd guess they're about two or three weeks old were two chicks...

    Halo and Nivtups eggs and seramas and sizzles

    All go in tomorrow now that they are all here! YAY. They'll go in cartons at first - each box of shipped eggs had ONE cracked one in it. Sadly the GCM egg was much more badly cracked and will probably not be viable at all. Halo's egg crack was much less profound, so I waxed both and will...
