Moving On In....

Batch 2 found their way onto the pasture this weekend!  They were somewhat apprehensive about what to do....  



They had seen sunlight but had never had sun on their feathers.  So they weren't sure what to do when the sun started warming them up.  The chicks, at first, were not sure what to do with the grass and the dirt.  But within a few minutes, they were discovering that bugs are found in the grass and the dirt when they scratch around.

While the baby chicks were getting acquainted with their new home, the goats were getting really excited!  Buddy and Billy have learned that the chicken pens leave behind chicken feed when they are moved.  The goats love eating the chick feed.  Problem is that the chicken feed "clogs" up the digestive system of the goats.  So we have to keep the boys away from the chickens.  We have the goats about three days ahead of the chicken pens.  The goats still get all excited and try to break their leases!  They want to get to that chicken feed!  It's true that goats live by their stomachs.....
