Baby Animals - February 2016

We have some baby animals on the farm and it isn't even spring yet!


On 2/1, Zelda, our Nigerian dwarf goat gave birth to baby Holly; Daddy was Atari, a Saneen goat.

So sweet, fluffy and cuddly

That same day, on 2/1, daddy brought home a 1 day old bottle baby bull calf named Pibb. Our 4 big kids raised our last 4 bottle baby calves so this time Titus asked, "Daddy, can this be my cow this time? I am big now, I can feed him, I promise!"

On 2/4 we bought a bunch of tiny chicks to raise and double our flock of egg-laying hens and they are OH SO CUTE!

Our baby duck, Edmond, is about 3 weeks old now and getting big quick!



2/6 we were called on another orphaned baby duck, just days old! SO CUTE!





Our Christmas piggies are 6 weeks old now and ready to give mama pig a rest!
