Baby goats, baby plants and bigger chicks

April 5, 2013

Spring is of course a busy time at the farm – the to-do list never gets any shorter. But in addition to our planting schedule, we are watching goats being born or getting bigger, and our chickens are becoming young pullets.

This week one of our does in the group of #128s had this handsome guy. He was resting in the sun yesterday, taking in the world.

Some of our new ameraucana pullets, like the one below, are growing beards of feathers around their heads which makes them look fierce. They are about 7 or 8 inches tall now and chowing down on non-GMO grains and produce scraps from the Kansas Union kitchen at KU.

And the seeds we planted in the high tunnel have sprouted. Soon we’ll have lettuce, arugula and braising greens for the farmers market, which opens in about a week.
