New Year, growing goats, eggs!

The word from Barn Manager, Meg A.Delaware

After a long, cold winter break the barn is thawing out as students return for spring semester. Our baby San Clemente Island Goats have transitioned from the heated living area to the ‘big kid’ stall and are loving the extra space, kicking up their heels and butting heads from dawn until dusk.

Our chickens have come out of a state of near hibernation and have produced their first few pullet eggs (small eggs laid at the beginning of production.) We hope to incorporate these eggs into our dining services and hatch our own chicks come spring.

On December 28th we welcomed Sylvie’s second litter of Silver Fox rabbit kits into the world. Her 6 squirmy puffballs now have their eyes open and are exploring their new surroundings with mom.

Stay tuned for lambs, chicks and the promise of greener pastures!
