Goats, Chickens and Kroaker Update
The weak “Silky” chick died during the night, so today Gamble and Shirley drove back up to Elkmont and got two more – a replacement and a spare. We hope these are females; we don’t want roosters fertilizing the eggs, although they are fine to eat if they are fresh, we are told. When grown, the “Silky” chickens have the most beautiful long feathers. We know the common chicks are female; they had already been sexed. Kroaker and the goats are allowed to get out of the stall now and be out in the corridor paddock next to the barn. The goats are enjoying the new grass and being in the sunshine. Kroaker just watches. We still close them up at night.
