I will be showing my little Adelaide for the first time tomorrow. I am very excited, and a bit nervous too. It's a long drive to take with bottle babies... but the show must go on and things will all work out.
Jerry completed the new chicken coop/tractor for the baby chicks and we set it up and moved in the three week old chicks. It's a hit! They are really enjoying.
The six week old chicks will move into the coop later in the week. Two days ago my suspicions were confirmed when I heard the first attempts to crow from a baby rooster among this group. I suspect I have three roos among the younger group. Time will tell.
The carniolan beehive that I brought from Tehachapi has been flourishing, even among so many California buckeye trees. Thankfully. The queen threw off her first 2013 swarm this week, and they took up residence in a spare hivebox. Hooray! That was a miracle.
Mother Nature has been keeping us guessing lately. We had torrential downpours over a few days that washed out the center of my veggie garden, though today the sun is shining again and it's HOT!
I am heading out now to check on the chicks in their new home, then I will be off to shear my little Adelaide for her sow tomorrow. I will post about the show on Monday.
