Our heritage breeds are kicking it into high gear this spring putting some beautiful animals on the ground. Spring is definitely in the air, now we just want a few inches of rain to get the grass growing.
Here is a summary of what has landed.
Condillisa-Heifer Calf born on September 29th “Cat”
Kicking Cross-Bull Calf born October 3rd
photo and name to come and more calves to come too
One of our farm bred Plymouth Rocks hatched out 8 chicks on her own in the food forest and is doing a lovely job keeping them protected and growing (despite our best efforts to contain her and assist)
Born Sept 15th
Diesel is doing a wonderful job with her 12 piglets (born September 18th) who are growing quickly and showing some incredible high bred vigour. She is our first farm bred Sow and is a Cross from our Pure Bred Large Black sow and a Singh registered Berkshire/Hampshire Cross.
Babe or Gypsy looking very close to having piglets. Time to do a bit of refining in our farrowing shed to make room for more heritage to arrive.
