lambing is almost over and I only have one bottle baby and she is doing fine! I am now on the lambs feeding schedule and this means sleeping on the couch for 2 hrs in the evening so I can feed the lamb at 12:30 am. Then back up at 6:15 am to feed the lamb no later than 7 am. I have another 8 days of this schedule and then we move to feeding every 8 hours. It is amazing how life changes when you have animals. Zorra has adjusted quite well to this change of schedule, but she is getting a bit porky due to less regular exercise and the very cold weather didn't help. But spring will be here before you know it..............we can only hope!
Having a chicken in the house is very interesting. You need to clean the pen but where to put the chicken while you clean her pen? I decided to put Chicktoo in the claw foot tub. This worked great till Chicktoo got healthy and I found her perching on the edge of the tub pecking my soap..........
I know chickens get bored and since she doesn't have much to distract her I have placed a squash I broke in half for her to peck. It works great, but Zorra, my Corgi lies next to the pen and cries. She wants the squash......................
