Conjugal Visitor

Here is the next candidate:

Masterpiece aka: The Hot Stud at the UrbanHippie Farm
Our 2 brief "visits" have apparently not been successful (in terms of sperm going where no sperm's gone before), and so we have chosen a new path (and one that feels more romantic to me). We have brought the guy home and are letting him spending 6 quality weeks with our girls. He is learning their likes and dislikes, sharing their bed, and getting to know their family...doesn't that seem more appropriate, since he is going to be the father of their children?!?

He arrived on Wednesday, and I have not seen any signs of either girl being ready to receive yet...but I'll keep you posted.

Meeting Scout
In other news, it was a GLORIOUS spring day today!

We had our friends, Barb & Morgan, and their clan over--we played outside while Morgan pruned the pear tree and Rich prepared beds for planting. They even brought us full grown chickens that *just* started laying! So far they were able to bring 5: 1 auracana and 4 buff orpingtons, but they will be bringing out 5 more on Monday... 10 chickens?!? We are hoping they adjust nicely and are giving up their eggs in no time... we just can't live without our own eggs anymore.

Happy Spring, readers!! I hope your first day of spring was as wonderful as ours.

What happened to the chickens you all had? Did they stop laying? Good luck with the man goat. Hope the ladies warm up to him soon. ;)
