BUT FARM!! Here is what has been happening around the joint....
GOATS! They have been upgraded.
These are our newest additions to the farm. 12 little ducklings. Aren't they adorable? I've been trying not to get too attached as normally an entire hatch doesn't make it to adulthood, but so far so good! We'll move them up to the pond when they are about a month old.
Also we are starting to sell fish. John has organised with a local shop to start selling them up to 3kg's of catfish a day. That's $6 a day. I know it doesn't sound like much but that will cover most of our food expenses. Its a bit exciting for us. It has been a bit scary not having any income coming in yet, so this is a huge blessing. Here's hoping for more and more.
A final sad note - Frankie our goat is quite ill. We think he may have suffered from a brain parasite (passed down from his mother) and now he appears to be brain damaged. His neck has sever curvature and he seems quite vacant. He can get around and eat by himself now, but there have been no improvements in his overall health. Please pray that he gets better as we miss his friendly self.
Til next post. Peace Out
