Tryst tries herding

Our youngster, Chaparral's French Tryst, has now started taking an interest in our sheep so we've let her have a few interactions with them when we are bringing them into the barn.
Here she is trying to fetch them.  Not very organized but it was her first effort.

Oops, a few got away......... 
Have to go back and get them.

OK, everybody accounted for now--into the barn!

New chicks

January 27th of the new year brought the arrival of my first batch of hatchlings.  I received an incubator for Christmas so it was my test-run to see how it works and what was involved.  I put in 14 eggs and 13 hatched.  This was such fun for me and my family to watch as each baby chick emerged.


These chicks are a cross between my Euskal Oiloa rooster and my Ameraucana hens.  They are a cute as little chicks!!
