We're on our second attempt at babies for one of our female New Zealands. So far this batch has lasted twice as long. It probably helps that we have a real nestbox this time. Also, our adopted bunny is finally showing some growth. (A family in the neighborhood was forced to move, but the rabbit was running essentially wild. Another neighbor found it and asked us to watch it since we had food and such anyway)
The laying finally started about a week or two ago. They're pretty consistent now, averaging around six a day. I figure that's not that bad for seven hens. We've been thinking of getting another batch and hopefully will pick that up tomorrow. Though its not a chicken, we do have a duck now (was two, but stupid dog needs zapped ;)) and it seems to be getting along with every other feathered friend. The run is probably going to be expanded as well. Its only 4x8 right now and when all the birds are in it, it gets pretty crowded. We try to free range on nice days (with dumb dog chained up) and the birds love it. I've only had to get a couple out of a neighbor's yard once so far.
The garden is finally showing signs of life. Plenty of radishes and tomatoes are growing. The potatoes are coming along good too despite the dumb dog trying to dig them up. The corn is actually poking its head up. The peach tree we bought needs some rain, along with the rest of the plants. I hope we can get a nice one day soaker soon.
