We got back last night, the 11th and it was a very hard trip, but fun too. We came back will a few more birds then I thought we would. My hubby is a little upset about that, because now he needs to build some cages. Also, 4 of the bantam Phoenix chicks (4 weeks old) escaped the cage and were eaten by something already. Now I have 2 left. MAJOR BUMMER!! They are show birds and very expensive, so I dont quite know how to tell my MIL that nearly all of them were eaten the day after we got them. We also got 1 Ameracana X Delaware cross pullet, a trio of Welsummers, (I had 3 pullets already of the same age) 1 buff bantam Cochin rooster, one Millie Flur (sp) rooster (Both from my old horse vet's wife) 5 Burmese Roller pigeons, 4 Helmet pigeons, and 5 doves, one of witch is a baby of the doves I gave her 8 years ago! Looks just like its parents and grand parents too. It is brown and white. So, Bein is beside herself as our 2 y/o filly is the boss over her! I dont expect that to last long. CJ was very happy to see her. He has known her all his life. Bein is boss over him. Cloud, the Arabian gelding I almost took, was so beautiful and acted like the stereo typical desert Arabian stallion. He was very friendly, but showed off like crazy and was unbelievably beautiful. He galloped up to me every time I went into the pasture. I love that horse. But, it is better we didnt take him. He is spooky when ridden and with his blind eye I am sure he could get real spooky. Anyway, that is some of the story. I will tell more of it if I dont pass out from exhaustion later. I almost forgot, Goldie hatched out 7 babies today. She is our 6 year old Serama hen and has never sat on eggs before. We are sooo happy!!! Here are the pictures!!
