    It has been a very interesting week with the goats.

    On Tuesday, one of them chewed through the wire that connects the electric fence to the charger -on purpose? Could they really think this through?

    On Wednesday, my Lily kept jumping INTO the fence and tangling herself, after freeing her countless times, she got herself stuck, and I could NOT unstick her. After a frantic call to DH, interrupting his conference, I had to cut the fence to free her...she immediately jumped back in.

    Tonight they are not even pretending to sleep in their field, they are currently on the deck.

    I should be bathing chickens...but I don't wanna.

    LOL, sounds like a few of our sheep. I put him in, he comes back out. He see's the dog, he goes back in. He is up in the farmers field eatting the wheat.. oops!! No wonder he is so fat! i am surpirsed he can fit through the fence. we need a good solar charger. BF said he was going to hook it up to 240... Fried sheep anyone? lol

    My crystal ball sez that the one on the right will be white with black on the wings and hackles. Also black in the tail if a roo.

    The one on the left almost looks blue. Does he/she look blue in real life, or is it more of a regular tan/brown chipmunk pattern?

    The above link will explain a lot for you. The biggest difference is different breeds mixed together to make different colored eggs, EE,OE,rainbow eggers are essentially all the same. Which means they are mixes of a bunch of different breeds. EE are usually Ameraucauna crossed with pretty much any chicken. OE are a specific cross of Ameraucana and a dark brown egg layer. Rainbow layers are exactly what it sounds like, who knows what color eggs you will get from your birds.

    Stories like these are the exact reason I don't have goats.

    They're both pullets, thank goodness. The one on the left its kind of a mishmash of every color. There's some gray, some weird browns, a bunch of tan, a tan patch on top of her head, and a little yellow. I think this picture is a bit better. (Is blue sort of like a gray?) She has a bit of a beard, too, I think.
