Was a strange day weather-wise. Sunny but with ice in the wind. Gave the chicks some wind breaks and lowered the heat lamps. Turned the kiddy pool over with only a small access piece so they can huddle together out of the wind. Should protect them from the expected rain tonight.
Had a farm visit today. Leanne and her mum, Sally, are interested in a herd-share. Now if only we are in the milk :). Checked Star, her udder is looking much better, but think she may have lost that back quarter. She's a great nurse cow, throws beautiful calves, but she's not great in the milking parlour :/. She holds milk, eats huge quantites if grain for very little return. All the farm babies were on their best behaviour. They bought farm eggs and I gave Leanne a meat and bone chunk from Midnight so she can make bone broth as she's just out of hospital and needs some building up.
Got some Rabon blocks for the cows in preparation for fly season, which seems to be the longest season we have ! Also more crumbles for the chicks. Feeding about 107 hungry little birds takes lots of feed. They seem to go through a bag every few days.
I really like Family Farm & Home. They have a larger selection than Tractor Supply of those things I seem to need.
