We have one fall kidding to look forward to. After a false alarm several weeks ago where I was SURE that Precious was soon to go into labor, she quickly proved me wrong. SO, it looks like Uncle is going to have his first Twin Willows babies born at the farm at the end of September. Precious is getting a nice udder and her tummy is widening by the day. She is already a big girl when she is not pregnant, but one look at her and all you can say is WOW! The babies are doing somersaults inside her. They are extremely active and anxious to see the world, I am sure.
We have added some new babies to the farm recently. We bought six straight run peachicks, and it looks like we ended up with two hens and four roosters. The following day, our very last adult guinea hen hatched 14 of 17 eggs. Of the 14 only one is pearl grey and the rest are whites, porcelains and lavenders. The peachicks and guineas are doing GREAT together in their new huge brooder. So far, no casualties whatsoever.
We are planning on going to Hoosier Rutfest in Washington, Indiana on September 22nd. We are taking Uncle, Ace, Mischief and Ante. Ante and Ace are still available, so if you would like to come take a look at them let me know. We also still have three wethers available. As always, if you would like to come visit the farm, just let us know, and we will gladly show you around anytime. We love visitors!!
Until next time, happy farming.
