Hey yal! On this blog, you will see a whole bunch of stuff! "What is this blog supposed to be about?" You ask, well, it has some recipes, animal pictures, project ideas, animal information, but MOSTLY animals... Enjoy!
One day my brother and I were playing in the backyard. We heard a little meow in some bushes. I looked and looked and we finally found a little orange kitten (Ever seen the movie "Milo and Otis"?) that looked like Milo!
I brought him inside and we decided that we would try to find a home for him. I (we, I guess) named him Milo, and he took his place in the sunroom, much to Zebra's unhappiness. He was SO cute! See for yourself...
A few days later while I was out playing with Milo, I heard a meow outside. Weird right? Because I was in a closed up sun room with no doors or windows open. I went out to investigate. In the next yard over, I went to the bush where the meow was coming from. Nothing, so I was leaving when I heard it again. I looked closer, and saw a little gray kitty clinging to the branches. It took me a while to get it out of the bush, but when I brought it back, Milo and him seemed to already know each other. Lol, so I named him Tiger since, um, Otis wasn't a very suitable name. so eventually, we found them homes, (together!) an it was great, but not without them first knocking my sandwich off the table when I wasn't looking or getting stuck to the couch or in a box. So, it sure was fun, my first rescue lol!
Yay! New baby have hatched... a couple weeks ago, soooo, they are bigger now than in the pictures.
They are so pudgy! Is that even a word?! I guess it is...
Anyway! Sorry yeah, not the best pictures, TRUST me, they are way cuter. There are 3 girls (or is it boys?...) and one boy (or is it a girl?...) 4 hatched and 3 of them are speckled Sussex, and the other ( middle in the first picture) was supposed to be a Commet (?) It does not look like a commet chick, I've had 2 of them hatch already and they hatch white. Anyway, they are ADORABLE, but I was a little disappointed when only 4 out of 7 hatched, but, yeah, life...
I think they are born cute purposely to cheer me up...
Let's see, because, right in the middle of this, I find all my chickens are out, and in mom's tomato patch, and they got out of a very stupid hole, so, cheer up!
I just went to this animal where people sell, ducks, geese, goats, chickens, rabbits, ect. Last year, we walked out with the duckies shown first in... well! I have never done a post about them! LOL I'll have to do that. Anyway, this year we got some quacking Pekin ducklings (where as before we got non-quacking Maskovie ducks). Also, I bought my own 2 Bantam chickens! YAY! They are SO cute! I love bantam crows.
A little about bantams: Bantams are mostly for pets and showing. They aren't good for meat and eggs because of their small size. They are cold hardy, thankfully, and are good in small yards because, again, they are tiny! They need food and water, like all chickens, and I am giving them crumble layer feed because of their small beaks. They don't need heat lamps as adults...they can take care of themselves. I personally would check on my chickens when it's cold, but it's up to you if you would like to put up heat lamps.
I love them, and I'm trying to think of names for them, any suggestions?
So, now that Cookie's chicks are like 3 weeks old, more have hatched! Also, I believe 2 other hens are also now broody... but that will be for later.
Anyway... I put 7 eggs under Teeny and all the eggs hatched! I'm so lucky to have 14(!) chicks hatched! They are really cute and I just put them outside today (I had them in the fort where my other Speckled chicks were 8D, see on the post Chicks (in December).
