Lucy is still mothering all three lambs very nicely, and they are growing noticeably. All three have very mobile tails that they can lift over their backs...a legacy of their East Friesien heritage.

I've seen two June bugs in two days. June bugs! In April! Global warming, I guess...or as I'm referring to it after the "Easter freeze", "global weirding". I also thought I saw a lightening bug tonight.

The other day a redtail hawk perched on the roof of the bike shed, not 30 feet from the kitchen window. Does this explain some of the missing hens? Minor predation continues to be a problem in the hen flock. No carcasses or feathers...I almost suspect a human predator.
