|This little chick still snuggles with it's mother hen every night.|
It still follows it around all day.
It's just starting to get it's feathers, but it isn't ready to be left on its own.
|When the weather is chilly the little chick can sit under the mother hen.|
Sometimes it takes a nap under her wing.
I love watching the hens and chicks around the barn yard. It's sweet to hear them cheeping, I like hearing the mother hens call to the chicks when they find food for them to eat, or get a drink of water. Those are some of my favorite sounds when I'm out in the barn.
I also like to watch the goats playing. My niece was here with her daughter and this is the video she took of the goats playing in the barn yard.
We will have to wait a week or so to see which goat will win.
The goat with the pink collar is new. Her name is Violet. She belongs to our friends. They have had goats for a little more than a year and the realized it was a lot of work, more work than they want to do right now. Violet will stay with us until they get ready to sell her in October. Violet is a very sweet goat.
|This is River. Do you see what is attached to her udder?|
This is a picture of the first time she is on the milker a few weeks ago.
She wasn't sure what was going on.
She doesn't mind it at all, now!
|This is the new goat, Violet. This is her first time on the milker, too.|
She doesn't care at all about the milker!
|River loves getting a hug when she is done being milked.|
Sometimes I even give her a kiss on her cheek!
