I called "Chicken Town" and set up an appointment for Tuesday - we'll pick up 10 pullets to replace the deceased ones. Not cheap - chicks are a LOT cheaper - but I can't do chicks, and I need to be able to put them out with the established flock the moment we get them home.
SG started a batch of "farmer's cheese" yesterday; Manchego is on the list for today. I am at maximum capacity for milk - the dogs got this morning's gallon - and I NEED the room. And the cheese...:lol:
Oh! I have found the almost PERFECT way to copper bolus the goats! FRESH baked challah. I decided yesterday I really needed to just DO it.....but I can't use a bolus gun. Marshmallows work...but we don't buy those often because they aren't Kosher. I had a day-old loaf of bread...so I took it outside, tore pieces out of the center, and wrapped the capsules in it. I Got Mobbed. :lol: ALL the milkers have been bolused, and some of the Cashmeres. I need to up the ante for the other Cashmeres - they were "meh" on the bread, but I KNOW they'll go bonkers over strawberry cupcakes. It's worth the cost of 1 box to easily get the copper into the goats, yes?
It was misting this AM during morning stables - hope it turns into rain! We need it...badly.
Gotta run a water sample in to Leslie's today, then I have to do work stuff.
