New Animals Here at the Ranch

It has been a great week here at the ranch. Michael and some of the men from the community built a strong pen to hold some wild pigs that were purchased this week. So on Friday Michael, Mr. Plumbley and Robert went and picked up the pigs. They don't look like the pigs we are raising. They actually have long black hair and seem to be leaner that our pigs. Here is a picture of them in the trailer before we unloaded them into the new pen.

The children think they look like dogs!

We plan to grow the bigger ones a bit and the smaller ones will be allowed to grow until about January. They all will eventually be butchered for food here for various people here at the ranch. The whole group here at the ranch went in together to purchase them. The men in the community helped build the pen and everyone that bought a pig(or two or three) will help feed them too.

We also had a chick hatch this week! It is so cute:

We had another one hatch but it did not survive. Lord willing, we will have more hatch soon! We have been caring for Mr. Plumbley chickens while he gets settled in and he had his first egg today too. So I will be giving it to him tonight when the community gathers for our weekly question and answer time.
