The clock is ticking ... Count down to spring babies ... goat, sheep, cow & etc.

What babies are you waiting on ... :D

For me ... the first longhorn heifer to calf ... and then the goats and sheep come the first of April...

I love springtime on the homestead!!!!!

How exciting!!! My dad was a DVM so I got to see lots of babies of all kinds.

I'm not hatching this year but I am getting some baby chickens ... and if my luck holds some baby rabbits too. I really want a dwarf goat (seriously, they are smaller than my dog) but I am not sure I can get the hubby to go for it ... I'm pushing my luck with the rabbits ... :rolleyes:

Even though I live in a somewhat urban area, I have enough room to raise chickens. I've done it before, and it might be a good time to start again. The fresh supply of eggs is great, but I never had the urge to eat them when the hens quit laying. That is likely to change. I found that by letting them free range in a fenced back yard, I was able to keep the feed costs down. I also used to buy old bread from the bakery thrift store when it got old, for 20cents a loaf. Placed in the freezer, it lasted forever. I also ate it, as I found it ok in taste . Cheaper than regular feed, and stocked with vitamins and minerals, the old bread proved to be a great addition to the feed program. Good cluck. hope this helps.
