Baby Piggies!

Thelma had 11 babies last cute! They are not crawling into the crib even when I put them in it they crawl back to mommy. 4 have been squashed...I hope that will be it. We will see. Thelma is a first time mother and is feeling a little stress. But I think she will be alright.

Nothin better than piggy milk for breakfast!

The Black Copper Marans have started laying eggs! The dark chocolate brown one on the left is A Black Copper Maran egg and the tan one on the right is a Buff Orpington. Black Copper Maran chicks are running as high as $13 to $25 per chick,but most web-sites are sold out. If you have any Black Copper Maran chickens or chicks for sale please contact me at:

Steve and I have been very busy building Thelma her new piggie crib for her litter of babies due to arrive on Feb 28th or so. I think she has approved the construction.

We will post baby piggie pictures soon!

Texas Snow!

Our newest editions to the sheep herd were born on Jan 30,2011! Eugene and Calvin Orth! Today we got 6 inches of snow and they are having a lot of fun playing in it.

Fancypants keeps his favorite hen Ladybug warm through the cold spell.

Beauford likes to eat the snow...he does not mind the snow at all.

The sheep have been shivering in the -9 wind chill temperatures but doing O.K. We put out lots of hay for them in the shed and have been breaking the water for them for almost a week.
