Seriously ..... Slacking .... !!

The new Brahma Boys
Ok, I am guilty of seriously neglecting my blog over the past few months. 

The Peacocks are starting to look very nice.  Both have grown quite a bit and have taking to exploring around the garden ! 

I have chicks ....  this is them on the kitchen table ... when they were a week old.  They have now been moved out of the house, they are three weeks old today and the eggs were hatched by an incubator !  But don't tell Mrs Orpington who found 8 chicks under a gooseberry bush .... she just loves them and took to them straight away, which was amazing to say she wasn't even 'broody' at the time.

The alpaca girls are enjoying their sprinkler .... thankfully the weather has cooled down just a bit.  I still have loads to do .... as usual I am late doing my hay/haylage but I'm confident it will all get sorted on the next dry spell... I'm gearing myself up get cracking !!

On the job list that has been done, I have managed to get the piggies mucked out .... we did as usual have some minor mechanical issues.  Which meant I was still busy at yontime .... but we achieved the end result .....which was amazing under the circumstances.
So to the more exciting times, my babies are due mid September, by then I hope to have done all I need to do, so that I can concentrate on the new arrivals. 
I am hoping to have a talk with myself about compiling a sales list .... at some point, but I can't promise anything !......... Just Yet.
