It snowed here yesterday!Of course it is gone today but they were some of the biggest flakes I had ever seen! This is a blurry picture but you can still see how big the flakes were ..sort of!
Here is Weenie looking cute in the snow! She spends her days stalking a mouse hole by my shed underneath the bird feeder!
Whirly Comb Jr. has been sitting on some eggs and they were starting to hatch and peep last night! That dark brown egg is a Cuckoo Maran,it will be a Buff Orpington mix most likely.
At the time she went broody the girls were just starting to lay so I just stuck under her what I had that day! Whirly Comb Jr. is the half Buff Orpington daughter of one of our little Bannie hens.
Unlike her tame and gently momma,she is meaner than snot ,but she has her momma's broody ways and will even go broody smack dab in the middle of winter!
I also picked up a young New Zealand rabbit to replace the meat rabbit we lost this past summer to the heat wave.Ours we have now are Californians.That will put us back at 2 does and a buck. I might get another doe later on.The boys are working on fence and I am going to go and love on Murry, hope every one is staying warm!
