Farm Life

Our little farm has been growing again.

Our best brooder hatched out one chick a couple weeks ago, and then a week later, adopted nine chicks that we hatched in an incubator. Surprised us that she took them in so easily, but it makes it so much easier for us to take care of the chicks.

Then last week, we had another hen hatch out four more chicks (she hatched three earlier this spring). We're up seventeen chicks this year and we added a beautiful Black Copper Maran rooster.

The third of our goats had her kid.

That birth was another first for me. Baby decided to come out nose first instead of feet first, so I had to help mama birth the shoulders.

We have one more mama goat waiting to give birth. In one year our little herd of three goats has grown to nine!

Our rabbits continue to give us cute little babies. We're waiting on two of them to have kits right now.

I wish I could say that our garden was growing as well as our animals, but I can't. With all the rain we've been getting, the garden is soaked. The plants haven't been washed away, but they haven't been growing as quickly as they should.  Hopefully we'll dry out soon =)
