4-H Update

As we do our weekly feedings and meetings we watched the chicks grow and thankfully all have survived and are doing well. Here they are progressing at 3 and 4 weeks.
The chicks at 3 weeks

At 4 weeks they are starting to lose their downy feathers and get their adult ones.

This last week as we went to feed, we were told there is a pygmy goat in the Rabbit area that likes to jump on you.  As a herd animal they do not like to be without company, so this little guy REALLY wanted attention more than food.  We spent some time loving on  him as we fed the chickens, chicks, rabbits, doves and pigeons all part of the 4-H program.

Don't know whether this goat is a permanent part of their collection or they are just watching it for people. It has a collar, so has been someones pet.  It definitely needs to be around others of it's kind or people who can dote on it.

He really liked Kevin!!!

Made friends with all of us
Looking more to getting our own chicken area started now, and after meeting this guy the girls really would like to include pygmy goats to our homestead.  Hmmm, will have to see about that.
