Springtime animal fun!!

We've added 4 critters to our menangerie....3 of the cutest baby duckings and a friendly gerbil named Smee Murphy.  Katie is the keeper of these critters and is having a blast.  The duckings she has dubbed Myrtle, Seven & Juniper.  That brings our total to 4 llamas, 1 dog, 5 cats (soon to be 4 as Mom is taking one with her back to Indiana), 13 chickens, 3 duckies and 1 mischievous gerbil.  We decided against expanded our chicken flock this year although we will probably regret it as the ones we have don't lay as well.  We also have a strange anomaly in our chicken flock with the large and incredible "Henny".  The cornish rock that was never butchered but kept as a pet.  She produces earthquakes as she stomps around the farmyard.  She is now 1 year old and none of us expected her to live as long as she has, but she is still with us!!  I wish I could put her on a scale and weigh her, I'm assuming it is near a TON!
