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!
