Spring is Almost Over

Last Friday I thought my last lamb had been born only to go out Monday morning to a new ram lamb. So I'm not so sure if spring lambing is quite over or not. This mom didn't look pregnant so more could be and I won't know until the event happens. The hummingbirds are keeping us busy refilling their feeders every couple of days now. We have had three birds coming for about five years, but there are about eight to ten birds now, battling for the sugar water. We have had to put another feeder out at the back of the house just to lessen the fighting.Bill dropped by the other day and brought my ameracuana chicks to me. They are absolutely beautiful birds. There are a couple of cuckoo morans and welsummers in the bunch as well. We put them in the barn only to loose one to a mink. They are now safe outside in the chicken tractor living more like a chicken should anyway. Enjoy the pics.
