Yesterday, just a day after Marla lost three kids, Nellie has delivered three healthy babies. She had a little help from Cherie, the awesome goat midwife.
Then this morning Missy delivered two.
We’re hoping for nothing but good news during the rest of this kidding cycle.
A couple of hours after writing this I heard from Cherie (who’s handling all this alone as I’m stuck out of town) that she had to pull a still-born third kid from Missy. Then she discovered another chicken killed by a hawk.
As I said yesterday, this is not “the simple life.”
