Well Oynx surprised us I thought she would calf around April 4th guess not I was right about her calf being a heifer after 4 bulls she now has a little girl and a darn cute one at that. she weighed in at 62lbs. Ted thought he should go check the cows and Tadah there she was standing by momma these lowlines are such great mom's. Even with the record rainfall I was able to get the garden started thank goodness for the salsa (warm) house I had started spinach and lettuce back in January. I was able to get them into the ground last week along with the peas and the walla walla onions can't wait to taste those YUM YUM. the chick area is ready for the new arrivals I have never catalog ordered chicks before they are due to arrive around April 23rd so excited I ordered Chatncellers a rare and endangered breed the only known Canadian produced chicken and the most cold hardy of all breeds. because apparently I enjoy farm work I'm also going to try uncubaating some eggs beginning April 1st I'm hoping if I have success they will hatch around the same time I receive the chantclers will see farming plans never seem go as expected.
