    Just some pics for your viewing pleasure, of several different critters. First up, my first four chicks ever! Two RIR and two Australorp, all supposed to be pullets. We started them off in this brooder (there was a lamp on the far right side but I was just transferring them before this pic, and I'd already put it on the big brooder). I'm too chicken (lol) to use a cardboard box incase something happens and the lamp sets it on fire. So the wire cages I had free I thought were perfect. The first one I use for transporting our cat and any tiny tiny baby goats. The second one is an old rabbit cage I had when I got my bun as a baby and she lived in the house, and my friend uses it when her pedigree queens are kittening.

    Then we changed them to this bigger area. They are a week old.

    Our local Pet Barn branch had an 'animals on display' weekend, and we brought along our goats (several each of boer, angora and dairy) and sheep, the ones that were very friendly and liked pats etc. Here is Charlotte the Harlott (Boer) and Possum (Saanen) relaxing in between patting sessions. I took 12 animals all together, but didnt get much time to take photos so this is it, I'm afraid

    Boer kiddos - these guys are a couple months old and are all going off as pet wethers/grass eaters. They are the lucky five out of a drop of 80 or so wether kids that are headed to the feedlot and freezer.

    Here's the first poddy lamb of the year - a crossbred ewe. Dad named her Erika, terrible name for a lamb.
