Day 3 with Banties…

It’s Fat Tuesday!  It’s Red Bean and Rice tonight for dinner, yum.

We are on the verge of lambing season.  We have 14 sheep who should lamb starting in March.  We have a baby monitor in our room so we don’t have to go out to the shed as often to check on them.  Last night someone was upset.  Her cries woke me up through the monitor.  At 2:00 in the morning my dh and I crawled out of bed, and I went out in my pajamas with a flash light to check on them.  Everyone was safe, sound, and not in labor so back to bed we went.  Koal (our little mutt puppy dog) must have had a nightmare in the night because he woke up barking ridiculously and woke everyone up a second time.  Ash (our Blue Heeler) let out an annoyed moan and fell back asleep.

Dad’s Bantie chickens we are housing for him are doing well.  We were up to five eggs since they arrived Sunday.  Tonight we are going to fetch an old wooden ladder from Grandma’s for them to roost on and to fill our corn barrell so the sheep have corn for the week.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
