Sunday morning, the ewe lamb had a lamb. She was still suckling her mommy when she first came here, and now she is a mommy herself! The lamb was quite small and wet and poorly in the beginning, but now, two days later, it is a healthy little bouncing thing. I don't know what sex it is yet, but as the ewe lamb herself is not registered, this little one is destined for the freezer.
And in other baby news, we've put this hen on some eggs, so hopefully she'll hatch them for us and then we can see how this new cockerel's fertility compares to Big Boy...
