Good luck to Mrs. P and her new baby Chick!!
Today Mrs. P’s little baby chick hatched!! Baby and Mom are both doing great!! The weather is super hot at 89-92 degrees!! But, Mrs. P is a great mom and she will take good care of the new little July baby!! Maybe that’s a good name for the baby—JULY!! So cute!!
Here is her lovely twins !!! Two beautiful Doelings…Girls!!!
On June 10th we had an incredible thunderstorm and both June and Jill had their twins on the same night!!! These two babies of Jill’s are so cute. As you know, she is a Nigerian / French Alpine dwarf and so her babies are so small and so cute!! They are certainly going to be enjoyed by all the guests!! We are so happy that they are now a part of our farm animal family!!! Welcome!!
Centre Alumni, Sarah with daughters Lucy (7), Sophie (5), and Cora (3), step up to help with the bottle feeding of our newest member Peanut Brittle!! Our thanks to them and all of our other guests that are helping feed her many times everyday….Sometimes, the mother just can’t or won’t help take care of her babies. In this case, Almond does have 2 others to feed, too. So, keep up the great work…or is it really work???
Here’s the latest January News report from The Farm, LLC by Roy….
January weather has been mostly mild for Danville. As usual for Kentucky, this week has brought lots of weather changes. Yesterday was 69 degrees and tomorrow will reach 22 degrees for a high.
After a month of looking at seed catalogs , we will soon begin planting early crops in seed beds. Leaf lettuce, radishes, greens and some herbs will be on the table before you know it. We are expanding the garden space and I can’t wait to begin another year.
Farm animal news also is exciting as we move into February. We have 2 baby goats (kids) already and expect more in the next 10 days. We will be getting our chicks and ducklings stocked in the brooder house in the next couple weeks.
Jersey cow had been limping a little for a couple weeks. The vet found a nail in her hoof and got her healed up .
The chickens have produced very well all winter and we always have farm fresh eggs. Most of the goats have dried off as they near kidding. Chenell and June are the only 2 milking at this time. The Pyrenees , mini horses, donkeys, pigs,rabbits, guienies turkeys,ducks,peafowl,calves, sheep and Samson all look forward to seeing you at the farm very soon.
Come see us and bring your work clothes if you want to help out a little!
See you soon!!
