THE ALPACAS ARE COMNG! THE ALPACAS ARE COMING!!
A beautiful female chocolate alpaca named "Coco" -- is coming to live at Creature Comforts Cottage with her darling 2 week old red cria. A playmate for Katie!
But there are more: THE SILKIES ARE COMING!. THE SILKIES ARE COMING! Two week old black and red silkie chicks will also be arriving this week with a White silkie hen. Finally there will be some eggs! So all that will remain to complete the plan are the Sebastopol Gesse. Probably next year now. Oh yes. The new barn will be here soon too. So lots of things happening . Well that was the plan! Someone else got my colored silkie chicks. So I got the adults. A black rooster and a blue rooster; A red hen and a white hen; an older Lavender roo chick, and an older pair of white chicks. They really are lovely. I never liked chickens that much but there is something wonderful about these creatures.
They love to be held and coo and chatter. The big black roo knows when something is going on in the barnyard and calls out his opinion on it all! It is really quite charming. And the hens lay eggs too! Ok well they are "little" eggs" but these pullets are really good. So tomorrow I fill in the blanks so there is a pair or trio of all the colors and some muscovy ducklings to clean up the pesky mosquitoes. Hey this is getting to be a real farm!
So this Blue Silkie is not mine, But thought the pic would do till I have one of my own. So this is a chicken??? Wait till you see the black rooster that has a golden mane with red highlights and white feathers in his perky tail. He is very beautiful.
