The Beginnings of Our Flock

We got these in on Thursday. There are several Barred Rock chicks, with lots of Speckled Sussex chicks. I give no numbers because I can't remember how many we have... I think Mom said 70-something... Anyway...

We also have 8 or 10 ducklings. There are 6 or 7 Peking ducks and 3 Blue-Billed something-or-others. :-) Don't you hate it when you remember what something is until you need to type it? Ugh...

The Chickies...

And Duckies...

We have also aquired a brother-sister pair of (really cute!) mutts. These are our "pet" dogs, as opposed to the livestock guard dogs (LGD) we will be getting later. I haven't taken any pictures of them that are postable yet...But I will soon. :-)

And goats.............They technically belong to some friends of ours, but are currently on our property. As of yet, there is only one of them I can say that I like. The rest....Well, let's just say there is a reason why we didn't intend to get goats.
