One Week Old!

The lambs are one week old today! I thought I'd celebrate by giving you these few videos. I still haven't named them. I'm not sure I'm going to name the ram lamb. I'm thinking he'll probably be raised for the freezer, so I'm not sure I should name him. I try not to get too terribly attached when I know we might eat something. He's so friendly, much more so than his sister. He loves chest scratches. I'll have to post a video of that some day.



And here's a video of the crooked neck chicken. She's looking a little more normal now-and very curious!


I brought a garbage bag full of shredded paper from the paper shredder at work. The chickens have been in their coop for over a week straight now, and their shavings were getting a little gross looking. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get more shavings, so I figured the paper would work until then. Hopefully they won't get wet and form a slippery wet surface. That'd be bad.

I'm going to go knit some more. I've finished one fingerless mitten and I'm working on the second!

Oh Katie. They're so cute! I love how they jump around like that. Purl keeps such a close eye on them. What a good Momma. Yeah, I don't think you should name him either if he's going to end up feeding you guys.
I'm so glad that crooked chicken is doing better! Good thinking on the shredded paper bedding :)

Oh my goodness... I Love It! They are so stinking cute, I'd never get anything done cause I'd be sitting there watching em all day! Your farm is just so cool to me :)

I loved the videos!!! Thanks! Becky and I have been hoping for some videos! I love watching the lambs bounce around - they are just so cute. I wish the ewe lamb was the more affectionate one but she's so cute too! Purl has a very deep bleat and keeps the lambs close to her! A very protective momma! Great job and I know you must be loving every minute of your farm!! Love you, Momma
