Here are some photos from our visit:
Ms. C showing us the fancy chicken coupe Mr. T built. There are juvenile chicks inside. They still make cheeping noises, too.
The kids were a little nervous initially but soon they warmed up to everything.
The chickens were cool and that coup is totally impressive. However, the goats were really fun. There used to be a goat at the barn where I boarded my horse. He used to ram just about anyone in his path. He steered clear of me because my horse would kick him any time he came close (she never kicked anyone or anything else - smart mare!). I was actually a bit nervous around the mama goat but the 3 week old babies were so soft and so cute. These were fun. It was like the petting zoo on steroids for the kids.
The kids had a great time but before we left, Mr. T showed us some starling babies in their nesting box.
Thank you Ms. C and Mr. T for sharing your new critters with us. We all had a wonderful time and look forward to helping you tend your garden and animals in the future.
