And I'm looking forward to a new batch of guineas. I purchased six eggs from a farmer in a Facebook group I belong to. They were first of the season (my broody hen was setting and I wanted her to be the babysitter) but I'm hoping they were healthy, fertile eggs. Mama hen has been very diligent in keeping them warm! I'm not overly fond of guineas but last year was the first summer we hadn't had any in a long time and it was also the first summer in a long time that we found ticks...so back to the guineas we go!
We don't have an expectant mama cat but we are hoping to get a kitten or two from a friend when they are weaned. We really need a barn cat to help with the.... oh, you don't need the details. Everyone knows why barn cats are necessary. Anyway it will be fun to have some new little fur babies to enjoy.
