And I'm happy to announce that all 5 of my percentage silver fox babies are doing wonderful and happily hopping all over the rabbit hutch, eating the feed and hay cubes. They are getting big. They are around 3 weeks old and already bigger than my hand. I'm trying not to get attached since they will be food, (except for the one going to Dilly) but it's hard not to when I'm so smitten over their mother :) Oh, and I found TWO Silver Fox breeders within about an hour from me. One for sure has stock that is not related to my Bella and I'm SOOO excited about this. She doesn't have any available at the moment, but I'm on the waiting list. I will also be purchasing 2 red/white New Zealand babies around Dec for $30. I'm very interested in crossing the NZ and the SF to see what kind of litters I can get.
Been doing Alot of cleaning and landscaping around the yard. Recycled what we could and took the rest to the dump. Started building this: (also from free, recycled posts)
|The little plant that you see in there now is what's left of my Raspberry bush. There was a blackberry at the other end, but it Zac stepped on it while helping me build the beds and now it's in blackberry heaven.|
|This will eventually extend out and turn to the left and for a "L" shaped bed around the camper. This will be planted in Blueberry bushes next year.|
|This is the "new" chicken yard. The last one was much smaller. This still needs improvement, but will do for now.|
|The white leghorn, the australorp, and thesilver laced wyandotte.|
OH! And I almost forgot to mention that I'm the proud new owner of an Excalibur dehydrator!! It's the small one with only 4 trays, but I figured that's a good start. I've already dehydrated some mushrooms and a bag of carrots. I think I got the carrots a little too done though....ah well...practice makes perfect.
