Chocolate and wine! Definite storm/hurricane supplies at this house, lol. Hmmmm, wonder if I should make a batch of brownies before this evening?i eat chocolate.
You better bring that gal in the house, lol. You KNOW she's gonna do it in the big ol' middle of that storm.I have a ewe due NOW and between Ewe Code. A storm, tornado, 80 MPH winds and rain sounds like birthing time to me!
@Mini Horses - Congrats on the new kids! Not gonna happen around here until the first part of April. Turned bucks back out with the does a couple days ago to do clean-up and looks like I've now got babies due in June too. UGH - hate summer babies - but whatcha gonna do? Maybe at least it won't be so wet then and they won't be exposed to so many parasites. Who knows?
Time to clean up the brooder and get it ready for a potential quail hatch. Tried to candle - hard to do with those speckledy eggs - but looks like I've got at least a few with some development. Not great fertility,, but there was only one male with all those gals. If I get a hatch I can sure change that ratio. Dependent upon getting a decent hatch I'll invest in some eggs and/or chicks from another source so I can get some genetic diversity.
I'm about to try something totally new to me. I'm going to try to grow some microgreens. No idea how that'll work out - but I need some instant gratification gardening right now. This temperate weather has me chomping to get something green and growing.
