Franklin is getting new feathers
he's preparing for winter
For evening chores, I'm in charge of the water buckets and assisting if anybody needs vaccinations or medications.
I find that the goats drink more water if I use these white buckets rather than dark-colored buckets. I think they like to be able to see that the bottom is clean.
Mike collects eggs, feeds, and locks the goats and chickens in their stalls.
Punkin is a Salmon Faverolle hen. She's far removed from show quality but real cute anyway. And actually, she's several years old now, I have no idea if she still lays eggs but she gets around real good. (We also run a rest home for retired girls).
Early, our Cuckoo Marans rooster, and Punkin. He has dried mud on his comb but has a good comb.
Our young Wheaten Marans cockerel, Duffy, doesn't have a good comb but he's the only male Wheaten Marans that we have now. We had his Daddy and a backup, sold our backup, and of course, Daddy then fell over dead. Fortunately, we had Duffy as a chick. Two young Wheaten girls with him.
A Cuckoo Marans hen.
Tonight was TootleLu's turn practicing for the show ring. Anybody with Nigerian goat experience please comment and don't worry if you see faults, we don't care about being competitive, just trying to learn.
apples, apple pie spice, raisins, Splenda brown sugar, butter, granola, cover and zap in the microwave for 5 minutes, yummo
these two get out at night after the birds and goats are safely tucked away. Irish Terriers, Bliss and Brawn.
