Late last week, our sow had piglets. We took the kids out to the barn in their pj's to see the piglets being born. One little piglet was crawling around in the hay. The 13 others were born later during the night.
The next morning, we got an early call from the post office saying our chicks had arrived. They are mostly meat birds, with one "free rare breed" (which was a Brahmas hen last time) and one aruacana (K's anxious to have colored eggs!) My parents happened to be in town for a few days and got to enjoy all the baby farm animal action.
