Population increase has not been going as planned this week.
After feeling we did a good job at the beginning of April, Lottie kept us guessing until the last minute – and beyond.
Her increase in weight during the last couple of weeks must have been due to the extra rations she received in the belief she was in pig, rather than due to actually being in pig.
Also, out latest attempts to increase our flock of laying Cayugas resulted in one hatched duckling out of 12 eggs. We now know this is probably due to a faulty incubator which is being replaced. We were quite clear it would be silly to care for one duckling, would be better off culled… we now appear to be caring for one duckling.
is the latest addition to our meadow plant list although we do also have a handful of other candidates waiting for firm identification.
