Spring IS Coming

61 Days and counting down! That is till Spring.

We put Jewell the bunny in her brooder with a nesting box last night. Keep your fingers crossed. I’m getting a heat lamp for her this afternoon. Luna will go in her brooder and nesting box on Monday. She is definitely pregnant.

Lost another hen the other day. Considering she was a black and white barred and there were red feathers around her, sounds like a fight gone bad with another chicken. We’re now down to 23 ladies and one rooster. They are so bored kept in their coop! The poor hens are losing their back feathers due to an over industrious rooster.

I’m pretty sure Rosie the Romney ewe is pregnant. Her belly is starting to look larger. If so, she’ll deliver around the first of May. Lambs!!! Yeah!!!!

Despite the countdown to Spring, the temperature will dip to -7 tonight. We keep thinking positive and planning the garden!
