My husband and I are bottle feeding 3 lambs and 2 calves this spring.

We are currently hatching mixed chicken eggs (21 so far).

Also have turkeys, ducks, guineafowl, and more chicks coming in the next month.

What is everyone else getting this year?

Well, since we live in the city we don't have farm animals but a robin decided that on top of our outdoor light fixture on the covered patio would make an ideal home.  She built a nest on top of it since it has an light sensor on it we have to now turn it off and on.  She has 3 little babies (that we can see) that are requiring constant feeding and she and papa take turns feeding them.  She has gotten used to us (well, hubby more that me) and isn't as easily spooked any more.  Hubby took a couple of pictures the other day and boy did she scold him good.

Hi

it's so nice to hear about all the good things!!!  I just love animals, we have 3 dogs and one cat.  Live in the burbs and we don't have room for anything else.

Hugs Cheryl
