I know I’ve been terrible about blogging lately. I’ve had a lot going on and have been traveling again for work. I’m finally in town for about two weeks, and am very excited about that.
What’s new? Not much. Got three more geese (Toulouse) to be friends with Talbot (Chinese). I’m afraid there must be a language barrier between them because Talbot has not yet taken to them. We will see if he gets better. He was a big boy and walked the whole way down & back to the creek today. He loves swimming in the creek. I can’t wait until he’s big enough to free range the farm all day (and still unsure if he’s actually a ‘he’).
FINALLY weaned my last 2017-2018 breeding season litter: Dallan x Faith. There’s six of them, three blues and three blacks. Hoping for some promising kits. My other set of grow outs are nearing the 12 week mark, and I’ll be culling those who aren’t up to par. I’m hoping I get at least one nice doe out of that whole group.
Pigs are doing well. Eating everything. Same with the chickens. I guess Elsa and Francis must not feel like going broody this year, as they’re usually sitting by now. Oh well. We have 11 Polish eggs in the incubator right now, due 7/31. Me and my auction buys, sheesh.
I guess that’s about all for now. I’ll pick back up in my series this week when I’ve got some time to write.
