Valentine's Gift and Baby Goat Names

Valentine's Day is know for it's many gifts. Some people get chocolates. Some people get roses. What does my husband get for me? CHICKENS!!!!!!!!!

                                                     19 hens to go with my three roosters.

My speckled Sussex that I had just weren't doing what I wanted them too. They were laying a bit, but they were laying medium sized eggs. I want LARGE eggs. My customers, who buy my eggs, what large eggs. So the speckled's had to go. They were given to me from a friend. Pretty, but not what I was wanting.


 Now that Valentine's Day is over, I'm back to focusing on the little cuties bouncing around the goat yard. I want to officially introduce to you Cinder and Ella.

Isn't that the cutest names? Someone suggested I call them that and it seemed just perfect! Here is Cinder getting some air.

                                                    Here is Ella playing King of the Rock.

                                                  Momma Dottie taking care of her babies.


                                                            I still see you Cinder!

So until next time, Small Farm Girl, chicken and baby goat watcher.
