    Yeah. She is the one that started this poultry adventure. I always dreamed she would be able to see it... I know she would be proud though...

    No calf yet. But WOW! is that backside of hers SWOLLEN! It is sticking out like 2 inches and very jiggly-is that what they call 'springing calf' or something like that?
    She keeps licking underneath her. and her teats look long now. SO EXCITED!!

    Who would have thought -4 would feel so darn warm! I am excited to see the other side of 0 today too. Sounds like a nice day to watch a calf be born!

    I am looking forward to this as much as I looked forward to my first-born-son. Its exhilarating watching the process of nature. I am anticipating the pictures too.
