Sheep and Chickens

We figured it was about time to give you an update about our lambs. Our handsome ram went in with his girls in November, which means we are expecting some new lambs around March 28th!
Yes that's right, in just a few more weeks we will have more of this :
This year Olivia, Mellie, Nina, and Rain have been with Arthur. So we are expecting at least four little ones. If you are interested in buying a sheep or two to start your own flock, feel free to contact us here or email with any questions. 

Another fun update is our lovely chickens have just started to lay again! After a few weeks of slowing down the laying, then absolutely NO eggs from molting, we have seen the light! They started laying one or two a day last week. Here is hoping it starts to increase. Honestly, thirty some chickens and we get one or two a day? I've informed them they will be stew soon if they don't step up their game... This weekend I brought one in to check his leg, he had a bit of a limp, but is overall perfectly healthy. We took a second to snap a picture before I let him back outside with some snacks. He is one of our newest chicks this fall. Out of our five new chicks, FOUR of them were roosters. How about those odds? It works out well though because T-rex loves the two older ones, he even taught them to crow. So hopefully we will be one happy flock with a few more roosters. 
And, last but not least, we've restarted the fodder for a healthy winter snack. The chickens and sheep absolutely love it! And, it's really nice to have something green and growing on these cold, short days.
