The little black chicken is doing fine but the mother chook is very protective and huffs up whenever I go out there and shoos her baby away so I can't get near it. She has had a go at me a couple of times when I have put food down for them. Silly thing!
The other chook is still sitting but I haven't seen any chickens and I am thinking that there won't be any now and I plan to clean out her nest and put her in the other pen this weekend.
I have had another chook, a Plymouth Rock coloured one go clucky so have put some fertile eggs under her.
I will need to wait 3 weeks to see how she goes.
The calf is frollicking around everywhere. The mother cow is looking fine. I am giving her extra hay.
The brown cow is still fat but no sign of a calf. I think she is just big and fat.
A few dramas with them all though as the black and white cow/calf got into the padock with the back neighbours animals. I'm pretty sure there is a bull or 2 in there...The next day all our cows were in there. The fence between the neighbours to our north and his back neighbough must be dodgy so when Hubby gets home I will get him to fix the gate between us and northside to keep our cows on our property.
Animals! Sometimes they are more work than they are worth.
