Mama cow came home last night!

I chose her name to be Gracie. She is a 2nd freshen, about 3 years old. Calm, sweet soul and very gentle. Her calf Molly was bouncing around her as soon as she went into the pasture! will post better pictures soon. She is a little thin and I suspect might be worms. I will quarantine for at least 2 months to make sure she is healthy and gets weight on.

Yay, mama cow! :celebrate She's in some good hands to get her back to health! :)

And I just noticed your other post about eggs. Glad you found the nest, but too bad they were all frozen! :hmm We were doing pretty well for eggs here and then one of the last three adult hens laying went into molt, and another went broody in December, and only one of the five pullets is actually laying regularly... Then practically everyone decided it was a good idea to have eggs for breakfast yesterday.... So, long story short I'm down to a total of 6 eggs left in the egg basket as of right now. :th

Vega is an absolute darling. :love :love Not gonna lie, I took a ton of pictures of her yesterday. :p These were the cutest:

Lastly, the last of my Guinea fowl. Over the summer, something attacked the Guinea flock (I suspect a neighbor dog, but I only saw it in a flash as it ran away and can't be sure), and only these four found their way home that night. :( I'm just amazed I managed to get all four of them to pose without anyone moving. :p

@Faraday40 That like from you just reminded me I forgot to add these pictures to that post! :th Silkied Cochins! :D The boys and Roxy are molting, and of course Donna is never cooperative for pictures, so it's just Abra and Rowena, but they're sure looking spiffy these days! :love :love

I love those little fluff balls! Thanks for sharing their pics for me!

Perhaps someday I'll add a bantam cochin to my flock. Right now my kids have silkied seramas & they seem to reproduce like Tribbles. (In fact I named one Tribble.) I think I'd get in over my head if we had cochins. My bantam orp Cookie is broody enough, so as long as she's with me, I don't have a need for a cochin. .... That's what I keep telling myself, anyway.
* Of course I LOVE the Cochin shape & appearance, so that's why I need you to keep posting them.
