Farmelette update June

The critters around here are just getting cuter and cuter! 

Little Baby emerged from under the shed with 12 sweet babies! We will sell 8 and keep 4. Each child can pick one to keep. I’m tempted to keep one myself!

 

Our sweet goat Martha had her babies yesterday. She gave birth to a doeling and a buckling. They both look healthy. That doeling looks just like her mother, and the buckling looks just like his dad. We are all so taken with them. Martha is absolutely in love, is that a smile on her face?

  

   
 

The roosters are coming along and will be ready for processing at the end of the month. This guy did us the favor of catching and eating a mole. That made my day!

 

We found this little nest of eggs in the goat pen. Can’t wait to see what kind of bird is hatching these out!
  

 
My garden is coming along after a nice week of rain. The potatoes are blooming, we have harvested some green beans, the tomato plants are setting fruit, I’m excited to see where it will be in a month.   

 We use manure soup to fertilize the plants. We have plenty of that around here!

    

Elijah has a project going. He hatched out some sex linked chickens and will be selling those as his small business.

    Are these eating ducks or petting ducks? This will need to be established early on… just sayin…

    Maybe you should spare that rooster that caught the mole… after all that was a huge favor to your garden. Also, those eggs do NOT look like chicken eggs so they may be some other type of bird, like ducks. What other type of bird do you have there? Or, are these snake eggs?…

      The eggs are tiny, the size of my thumb nail. We saw a pretty reddish bird leave the nest, we hope to get her picture!
