TEENY TINY NEW BABY QUAIL AT THE FARM

Farmer Mary bought these Coturnix Japanese quail this morning. They are just a few days old…they will start laying at six weeks old! The crayon in the photo was put in briefly just to try to show how tiny they are. Come hold one or two or ten!!

WHY DID THE PIGLET CROSS THE ROAD???

A big THANKS to several “friends of the farm” who alerted Farmer Mary this morning that the piglets had sneaked out of the front yard and pasture and were parading along Ghoston road (which is so busy we call it Ghoston Racetrack!)…

One piglet had been sneaking out the last few days to get extra feed in the doorway of the barn where Farmer Mary was storing it, but this was more than one! Luckily, by the time she got outside, the piglets were safely back inside all the gates and fencing with their Mother, Petunia.

Fencing has been strengthened this morning, but pigs are really smart and very strong so if you are driving by and see them near the road again Farmer Mary’s cel phone number is 919-244-1800. Petunia has been literally lifting a gate off it’s hinges to get from the pasture to the front yard lately!
