Today I was totally selfish. I had put a deposit down on an Icelandic ewe. I needed to pick her up today. I thought about how lonely she would be by herself and told honey. He said well, "pick up a couple more to keep her company". I knew we couldn't afford it, but my mom had told me what she was giving me for my birthday next week and I thought I would spend my birthday money on them. Well, I took from our septic fund to pay for them. I will put my birthday money in there when I get it. Do you thnk my mom will change her mind?
Speaking of chickens and hatching...We had a Buff go broody and hatch out eight little ones! How wonderful. Now we have another Buff that is setting. We will have chicken overflow. I love it. I pray that these chicks are safe and make it to adulthood, unlike the first two batches that were hatched this spring. I find if I let the chickens go free range, they tend to find safe places and start setting. This works for me.
