Daily Farm Update At Farming Friends 28/02/09

Farming Friends is really getting into the social networking scene as I have just set up a twitter account so that I can let everyone know what I am doing in short, sharp sentences, so if you have a twitter account or want to join in so you can follow farmingfriends on twitter then click on the link. 

So what’s been happening on the farmingfriends farm today?…….

Cats –  Stripe is holding his left front paw up today but he looks much better. The cats definately don’t like the cat biscuits I bought yesterday.

Cattle – The farmer’s injected one of the cows for fluke today and then tagged the calf and put them back in the fold yard.

Ducks – Collected 6 very clean duck eggs this morning. Took an order for 6 Khaki Campbell duck eggs for hatching. Tonight in the hut one of the ducks seemed to be limping a bit.

Guinea Fowl – I have located three potential nest sites for the guinea fowl when they start laying. I have some old guinea fowl eggs that I have found so I am going to mark them with a waterproof pen and then put them in the nest sites.

Guinea Pig – Gave Guiness some carrot and cauliflower.

Hens – Got three hen eggs in the hut this morning and no evidence of any broken eggs. Two of the hens have runny droppings and are not looking very lively. I will keep an eye on them.

Pigs – Gave the pigs lots of clumps of grass from the fodder beet pile and they are enjoying rooting through them for bits of fodder beet.

Quail – The quail love the fresh straw from yesterday and have made plenty of nests in the new straw.

Other farming activities – Steve got the sprayer ready for the spraying to be done next week.

See you back here tomorrow.
