Once again this year Teen Challenge was kind enough to give me the unsold xmas trees from their lots. As you can see I now have a mound of trees in my driveway. Being browsers the goats love nibbling on the trees and especially stripping the bark off of them. When I still had my Dexter cows they also enjoyed nibbling on the trees and Maggie liked to pick them up and toss them around with her horns too. Since I have way more than I need, I'm happy to share with anyone that would like to come pick some up.
We added a couple more hens to our flock last night. The lighter colored one is a Buff Orpington and the darker one is Americana. We now have three Americana's and are looking forward to seeing their green eggs in the spring. This brings the total of our little flock to ten hens and one rooster.
