In farm news...

All kinds of things are happening on the farm. The (chicken)girls are laying between a dozen and two a day. Yep, a day. We are selling eggs and they are just managing to pay for their feed. Of course, we have done some bartering too. I've traded eggs for my lunch and we are regularly trading eggs for goat's milk. 

In goat news: our (goat) girls are all (fingers-crossed) bred. The first due date is February 15, give or take a couple of days. We have lots to do to prepare the barn space for babies and ourselves for milking.

This is Ruby and Fanny (Nubians) and Gypsy's backside.
We have four girls and assuming all four are bred, I'll be milking four goats every morning come March. We were just discussing this task a few minutes ago and tonight it seems daunting....I'm just so tired all the time.

Ruby, putting her two cents worth in.
