Chicks and Piglets

We have some new arrivals.

Our wild hen–the descendent of an Old English Game hen the kids’ grandparents gave them–hatched out nine chicks recently. It is her third successful batch, and they’ve all made it so far.

Cracklin’, the sow who farrowed this past winter and then adopted another sow’s litter (18 in all), is taking great care of the 10 piglets she farrowed this week.

And we are expecting more any day.

We are anticipating some ducklings in the next month or so when the duck mama decides to sit.
