Miss Buff Orpington showed up at feeding time - soaking wet and a little ragged around the edges. I had to count the buff hens twice - I have two Americaunas who are light in color so I had to make sure I wasn't counting one of them. My guess is someone chewed on her (probably that Balto) and she ran away and hid in the forest for several days. I thought I counted her one other morning, but then didn't see her again, so I guessed I had made a mistake - but perhaps not. Maybe she is making intermittent appearances.
One lamb had a touch of scours the other day, but she's been fine since - Ellie has enough milk for three lambs, but only two left to drink it. The black and white lamb is a strong nurser and they were a bit upset by their first day in pasture. I was all ready to give her some Pepto-Bismol, but she recovered so quickly, it wasn't necessary.
The sky was actually clear this morning, but already clouds are rolling in. Someone at work made the comment that he'd been here for 25 years and this is the first time he actually considered moving due to the rain - so it isn't just me. This has been a dismal, cold, rainy year. I am hoping for a nice balance of tank-filling rain and sun in the summer!
