Hopefully this week will find us with some new babies!! J has 2 Californian does that are due this weekend. We are almost 100% one took, not so sure about the other. (Which by the way, is the one we REALLY wanted to have babies. UGH) These Cals will be meat pens/show buns for J's coming show season and fair.
(That is, IF everything goes right!)
Tori--the one we are sure took, is MISERABLE! She looks like she's swallowed a soccer ball, and she just seems BLAH right now, laying around a lot with her belly all sprawled out. She's been enjoying some extra TLC and belly rubs. ;-)
So starting Sunday we will be on "baby watch." Our entire family gets so excited when new babies are coming!!
We also think my Hotot MIGHT be "baby-ful" but I am not holding my breath. That pair is going to drive me nuts. (Kat- if you read this--I am so ready for March! =) )
We deduced our chicken flock in half. This gives us a bit more room for the 4-H chickens that will come in soon. I think we sent all of our egg layers though as we haven't gotten any eggs for 2 days now. =( The Easter Eggers should start laying with in the month, but they really seem stunted to me so I am not sure when they will start. Our chicken buddy says that he doesn't think I did anything wrong with them and he thought the only reason they were like that was because they came from a hatchery.
Turn in later this week for baby updates!! =)
