All of you are probably going through similar things, but I like share my fun.
This summer (actually in about 5 weeks), I will be shipping out for 2 months for training with the Army, so I am putting my hobby farm through some changes. I have sold 4 goats, and tomorrow will deliver my last one to another buyer. She is a pure white angora who just gave birth to pygmy-angora (pygora) hybrid less than three weeks ago. So, all are going to be gone as of tomorrow.
In their place though, I have a bumper crop of geese hatching. They just started on Saturday. As of Sat night there was only one gosling. Then, yesterday I saw as many as four. This morning it was too cold and momma wouldn't get off of the nests. With three sitting females I'm sure I'll have a huge flock and all the Christmas geese I can eat. They are all Tolouse or Tolouse-American Buff hybrids.
My Indian Runner Ducks can stick their heads up over the top of the brooders. The turkey polts (3) and new chicks (about 35) can all jump out. Have to keep wire over them now.
On Saturday I just got 2 new packages to hive. Hopefully the weather will cooperate today to get that done or we're all in trouble as I have to go out on business tomorrow and the next day.
It's all great fun. Love springtime.
