    It's too bad we have so much mud, because other than that I really like rain. I should live in the Pacific Northwest with how much I like rain, lol!

    DH is staying home tomorrow to get his truck registered and putter on it so he can take it to work Tuesday. I might beg him to take an hour out of his day to deal with chicken stuff... they really need to be moved and sorted so the correct roo is with the correct hens before someone goes broody on the wrong eggs!

    You should live in Ireland if you like rain :p Hope you can steal an hour's time from DH to help you get the chickens sorted. It shouldn't take that long.

    I know. Ireland and Scotland are both perfect for DH and me. I'm partial to Scotland because of my ancestry, he is partial to Ireland for the same reason!

    Emailed the lady I've bought a lot of my goats from about a Nigie buckling. I have no reservations about paying her prices for the healthy goats I've gotten from her. So many Nigerian breeders here... it's overwhelming lol!

    DH has a lot of Scottish ancestry - and I have some Irish, lol. I've got nothing against rain - but a whole lot of animosity towards mud... :somad

    Hope you get a good pick of a Nigie buckling. Can't wait to hear what she's got!

    I don't blame you on the mud, I am currently drowning in it!

    She doesn't have anything that I can use this year:( she only bred 2 Nigerians and the buck she used is related to Patty. Back to the drawing board. Ugh.

    I would love to get one soon so Lucky can have a friend. She's close and asking $250 for the two she has posted. I'm seeing mostly $400 and up, I've seen as much as $800!! For one little buckling?? I think not!
