The baby goats continue to grow and mature each day. Three goaties have left us and begun their lives in their new homes. It is so sad to see them go, but alas, we cannot keep them all; especially if we are going to have more babies next year! We now have 5 goat pastures and don't want to have to build any more fences!
Yesterday was vaccination and microchip day for the baby Nigerians. Becky vaccinated, Jack held them, and I photographed. Poor babies, the process was traumatic, but quickly forgotten with treats of Ritz crackers (their favorite). You can see that poor Stella is not a bit happy with this arrangement.
For those of you who wonder how Myrtle is doing....well, she is now Myrtle, the amazing one-eyed goat. I am happy to tell you that the pathology report was negative. Her nasty eye was full of inflammation but no malignancy.
Two of our 31 chickens have been placed into the chicken relocation program and sent back to the older chicken coop....for some reason these two were ostracized by the rest of the flock( a little fowl-play going on). Now those two will share their own chicken condominium, with very roomy accommodations. It should be any day now that all of our chickens begin laying. 30 eggs a day......hmmm......anybody need eggs???
