After getting home from work, I checked Scotchie's nest box and she had 8 babies after all! I am so excited that my first-time bunnies have been such good mamas. Both Scotchie and her sister have raised 8 without any losses. I am just anxoius to see the new ones hopping about in their pen, they should open thier eyes in a few days.
We are expecting piglets soon too, possibly as soon as the weekend. Both sows had 7 each last time, and raised a total of 13. But we're hoping for even more this time around! However, we only keep as many babies to raise up as we have orders for pork. They just eat too much :( So if anyone reading this is interested in a whole or half hog please contact me for more information!
I am so excited, our seed order from Seed Savers Exchange came on Monday. The packets show such beautiful plants, I can't wait to start them. I was also impressed because each packet tells you how to preserve seed for next year. I did some last year, but only green beans and sunflowers, so I appriciate all the information I can get! We hope to do that this weekend, but first we have to finish a chicken coop & run, as we wintered over our Phoenix chickens and a few Delaware pullets in the greenhouse. We need to move them before starting the seeds, because otherwise my beautiful seeds will just be expensive chicken food!
