  Tuesday with Tarragon
Tarragon is a 6 yr old Pygmy goat. She is a chubby lady with lots of attitude. When she wants scratched or petted she uses her weight to shove everyone else out of the way.

  No hatching, yet.
Poor Cotton Cody is still hanging in there. Other hens had been putting eggs in her nest for a week, so it's still a possibility that some will hatch.

Come visit me, Bracken and Brambles.

  Thank you for your comments on my site
I will definitely be looking into a couple of ducks. Do they lay eggs in a specific place? Do I need to provide a nesting box or will a female duck create her own nest and lay there? Thank you for responding.

I love your ducks. Are they Khaki Campbells? Do you collect their eggs for eating? I am interested in getting a couple. Yours are very handsome.
