Poultry Updates

Update 1: The Roostering So last fall we lost our rooster in the fall. Likely to a coyote. So we figured we’d have to get a new Roo. I went to the auction to pick up a new Roo or two.

Accountability Post

So now that I’m a lady of leisure (for the moment), I’ve got to figure out what to do next. There are things I have to do every day, and things I should do X times a week. There are also larger projects to… Continue Reading “Accountability Post”

Pregnant or Fat, Final Round

Today was the day! We got up early to take Ivy to the vet to see if she was pregnant. Pretty huh? Pretty early.

We are always looking for ways to watch the animals. This Christmas we got some cameras and a drone. Expect goat videos this spring.

Ivy and her Boyfriend

We got our act together this year (on some things-we’ll talk about the orchard later) and took the plunge into goat breeding. Around October, my Facebook goat group starts to look like Backpage. We discussed breeding last year with a guy, but never got… Continue Reading “Ivy and her Boyfriend”
