My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

GOAT AND CHICKEN COUNT

GOATS:

Why oh why hasn't Doe #1 kidded yet? For 2 weeks now she's looked like she's gonna pop. Is it possible for a goat to have 10 babies at a time? Just kidding.

So we've still got only 4: Doe #1 and #2 (both pregnant). Wether. Buck (fitting in nicely).



CHICKENS: adults: 4 black australorp hens, 6 egger hens, 1 egger roo, 1 ameraucana roo

11-wks-old: 5 from our own eggs (black australorp/egger: selling 2)

9-wks-old: 20 bantam eggers and silkies

5-wks-old: 20 black australorps, 2 white leghorns, 1 black sex link, 3 from our own eggs

5-7 days old: 6 cuckoo marans, 1 gold star, 2 buff orpingtons



TOTAL: 4 goats and 72 chickens! Huh?!?!

...and another 21 chicks have hatched over the weekend. Possibly more since then since more eggs still had another day or two.
