One of the first things you learn if you own Silkies is when they say that they are a good mothers, they are very serious. Lahaina takes it very serious her broodiness and we were able to catch it on video tonight. Enjoy!
My youngest chicks are approximately 15 weeks now and are really settling in to the barn. When the older hens start to settle down for the night, the young 5 get adventurous and wander all throughout the barn. I was able to catch a picture of them all which made me realize that at least one of my rhode island red chicks is a rooster. In the picture you can start to see some metallic colors in his tail feathers. I am hoping it is the only one but the kids have said that the reds have pecked at them and there is slight coloring in the other chick’s tail feather.
Finally, here is my goat update of enjoying a sunny fall day with Aspen and a cool evening with the pigs bedding down.
