A surprise start to ‘D’ year…

When I up-dated my facebook page and Twitter feed that the first signs of kidding were appearing I didn’t realise just how close we were;

 Briony kidded that very night!

‘He’ still doesn’t have a name but is a love start to our year of ‘D’ names and my first third generation of breeding. We have had to take him away from Briony as he wasn’t very quick to his feet and got a bit chilled, a warm feed and a night by a radiator later and he is a strong little boy but is still not very sorted with his feet so will be completely hand reared.

  1. He’s lovely Poppy , I love the way you allocate your animal names . When we move to our forever home in July my chickens are all getting named after different teas, and the following year different chocolate brands.

    By the way , he looks like a Donny to me!
