What a nice day we had. As you can see by the gage, it got to 60! After Church I went to the store and got all the making for Citrus Supreme Pie and also Coconut Cream Pie for PI day.
When I got home I let the girls out and we all sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. I read my book for the book club and the girls wandered around and nibbled on this and that. I put some grain out for them and when they got done with that, Abby went in and licked the rest up. I think that Abby likes the molasses in the feed.
I noticed that the girls hooves needed to be trimmed so I tried to get them on the stand so I could trim them up. Both of them have forgotten all about how to get on the stand. I only got JuJu's back right hoof while she was laying down. I will start tomorrow, when they are hungry for their morning grain, getting them back up on the stand.
Also I will be getting my chickens in two weeks! On March 27th there is a live animal swap meet. It's in the town of Neilsville and starts at 6am. I will be there at 7am! I think it's about an hour plus drive. The goat lady will be gone but she is going to give me a list of what she wants my to buy for her. On her list I know is Flemish Rabbits. (?) I plan on getting 10 hens and 2 roosters. Maybe more then 10 hens, we will see. Being that this is my first time with chickens I don't what 50 right off the start. I still plan on getting the Cochin breed, they are the ones that will go broody so maybe later on I will have more chickens.
