In exchange for this gift I have agreed to offer the same arrangement on our blog. So, here goes. To the first five people to respond to this post I will send those 5 people a gift package from our farm. This will include all natural goat milk soap, pistachio body butter and a body balm stick (made with bees wax). In order to pay it forward, I am asking that you then do this on your blog. Post what you will give to the first 5 that agree to pay it forward. If you decide to participate I will email you for your mailing address and get your package in the mail by March 1, 2009. So I'm jumping on the 'pay it forward' bandwagon.
Chicken update! The girls are in heaven today. Ted came up from New Hampshire this weekend and brought the chickens a surprise. He visited the dumpster outside of a vegetable market in a town that will at this time remain nameless and bagged up some tired but not spoiled veggies for the girls. I am totally amazed that so much is thrown out in this country. The bounty was a mix of greens, squash, cucumbers, asparagus, okra, lettuce, on and on. It will keep them busy for a couple of days.
A few of my blog friends have commented on Lazarus. I don't think she is broody. She was pecked on the back and then went downhill. She is still weak but now eating the oatmeal/pellet combo. She is looking better. Maybe I could take advantage of her sitting in the nesting box and place some eggs under her. We could have chicks!
Abbey is doing much better. No vomiting. She is eating great. Maybe the meds are calming her colon and she will do fine. That is my prayer. Yes, I pray for my animals too. Thank you to all who have commented. The information and ideas have been invaluable. Have a beautiful Valentine's Day and much love from Mainely Ewes Farm.
