    Aw, sorry I haven’t been around. All is well, no worries :hugs I spent the summer house-sitting for family, so I wasn’t really around, then, shortly after getting back, I was busy gearing up to go on my own vacation. Then fall business was upon me and that prevented me from being ambitious...

    Thick legs, upright stance, cocky expression...I’d guess roo, but give it a few more weeks to be sure :)

    Sounds like you’ve got your hands even fuller than usual :ep I can’t stand bad houseguests...but then I’m a bit of a recluse on a good day, so my tolerance level is super low. Hopefully everyone survives the next few days so you can get your household back in order. You got this :highfive:

    B&B Happy Goats....journal

    I believe it was a suggestion based on useful and factual information, not a decision made on B&B’s behalf ;) Everyone on the forum has as much right to offer opinions and suggestions as the person receiving them has to do their own thing :thumbsup

    B&B Happy Goats....journal

    They sense your fear. Most animals don’t trust people who exhibit emotions that signal danger...If you’re feeling fear around a bird you’re going to put it on edge looking for a threat - easy enough for them to assume it’s you ;)

    I would love to learn how to process and spin the wool I’ll be getting from the girls next year...I’m going to have to wait and see if it’s doable for me, but it would be really cool to work with my own homespun wool. I always wanted to tan rabbit pelts too and I never got around to it, so we’ll...

    Go for a heritage as a pet. They live much longer and you can get some really pretty ones ;)

    I so appreciate the storytelling skills of the members of this forum. Literally just :lol: at your unfortunate tale of duck excrement :gig Probably even funnier since it wasn’t me this time...I’ve been there :hide:lol::highfive:

    Rolling Acres - This and That

    I tend to give those ones to my dog, but I don’t think they’d be anywhere near bad in one day. Too early to begin developing as well.

    Rolling Acres - This and That

    My first endeavour at animal husbandry as a kid was raising and breeding mice. I traded the babies to the local pet stores in exchange for feed and supplies, so they basically paid for themselves. When I got myself a ball python many years ago (I don’t have her anymore :() I got a few mice again...

    @Bruce I think the chicken eggs are slightly more difficult to peel cleanly than the duck. The turkey eggs were the easiest as the shell is thinner, but with the strong membrane (more like the duck than chicken) it came off like nothing. It was almost too easy after doing the ducks :p...

    Roving's 2019 Lambs

    Those are just gorgeous :love I really want to do something like that with Ramchop’s hide when he goes to freezer camp this fall.

    I already have been :lol: :hide Actually just want to upgrade the girls’ setup rather than add more sheep. We’ll see how long I hold out before sheep math gets me :gig Yesterday for Canada Day, some of my family got together at Lake Erie for a picnic lunch, then swimming. I made deviled duck...

    That’s no good. I’d refuse to take meds too without being sure they’re actually going to help! Hopefully your appointment goes well and you can get a proper diagnosis and treatment.

    I’m just saying that in the hopes that it’ll stick and I won’t end up needing a bigger barn and expansions ;)

    I certainly think so :D Though I couldn’t help but notice the lawn is in desperate need of a good trim. The lambs do their best, but I’d need a dozen to make a dent in it! (No plans for that happening. Ever. Two-three, plus whatever they produce next year is plenty of sheep. As it is, I’ll be...

    Idyllic evening out with the lambs. Actually, I’m on the porch avoiding the mosquitoes so that I actually can enjoy the view :P

    Genipher's Journal - newbie on the loose!

    I’m dreaming of my future lambs and certainly got excited about my goat kids back when I had them too :weee I typically make sure my girls will be a year old or older when they’re ready to kid/lamb, as I don’t have an easy way to weigh them (yet), my rule of thumb is 8 months. Older if they...

    We just had a bit of rain in the morning, sunny and I would say beautiful if it wasn’t so humid now. The new tractor is now full of littles :weee Queen seriously needs to make up her mind...I pulled 19 eggs out of their pen yesterday and put them in the bator. I don’t hold out much hope that...
