Turkeys and Drusilla

My hen turkey is starting to lay eggs I caught her on the nest today.

Here is a pic of the proud papa Tommy strutting his stuff

I am kinda starting to think both of my geese are females. They started a nest in one place but never laid any eggs, then the one I think is a female started setting in anther place. Annie my BC got into the nest and destroyed all the eggs so then the other goose went back to the original nest and started setting. I checked today and there are 4 eggs in the nest I just ain't sure who layed them. So far they have both set on a different nest. I have not had geese set before so I am not sure their mating habits. If anyone knows anything about raising geese I would love some advice.

This is Dusty's Drusilla a fawn 40% German cross. This little girl was clipped today and gave me 7oz of spinning wool, all prime not counting anything else as I only keep my prime wool. This doe has really nice color for a cross and has a TON of crimp in her wool. I am very pleased with how she is turning out so I will be breeding her soon to SWF Walley an 83% black buck that carries "e". I have thought really hard about giving up on my fawn project and only working on colors that are closer to being excepted in Giants. The way this girl looks and a couple of my Agoutis that carry "e" I dont think I can do that. It may mean less room for REWs in the barn but it may be worth it in the end. Hope you enjoyed the pics God Bless!

Condemning Conscience

This was posted on one of the yahoo groups I am a member of and I would like to share it with all of you! God Bless

Overcoming a Condemning Conscience

Romans 8:1
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ
Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

One of the things I have found that hinders many Christians from doing
what they should for God is a guilty conscience. If the truth were
known, everybody has done something that they regret. The reason why I
know this is because everybody is a sinner. Because everybody is a
sinner, there is not a person alive who hasn't done some sin that they
wish they could undo. Therefore, everybody is capable of having a
guilty or condemning conscience.

Before I show you how to overcome the condemning conscience, let me show
you why Christians have guilty consciences. Revelation 12:10 says, "And
I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and
strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for
the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our
God day and night." Notice this verse says that Satan is the accuser of
the brethren. Satan's accusatory actions are not only performed in
front of God, but he will also take our past and use it to attack us
personally. Satan's accusatory attack can cause us to carry a
condemning conscience.

According to the verse above there is a way that you can overcome a
condemning conscience. There are three steps that God says must be
taken in order to overcome a condemning conscience. First, a person
must get saved. When a person gets saved all of their sins are placed
under the blood of Jesus Christ. Christian, you must realize that even
though Satan accuses you to condemn your conscience, you can respond
back to him by saying that all of your sins are placed under the blood
of Jesus Christ.

Secondly, you overcome a condemning conscience by not walking after the
flesh. In other words, the best way to overcome a condemning conscience
is not to live the life the flesh would like you to live. This is why
preachers constantly preach that you should stop trying to live like the
world. Christian, when you continue to yield to the flesh, you are
feeding the conscience with things to condemn you. You will never
overcome a condemning conscience while living a fleshly life.

Last of all, the way to overcome a condemning conscience is to do the
things the Spirit of God would want you to do. Yes, serving God and
doing what God commands you to do will help you overcome your condemning
conscience. When you do right and stop doing wrong, you will have a
clear conscience. There is nothing more refreshing than knowing that
you did right. The greatest prescription for overcoming your condemning
conscience is to live according to the Scriptures.

Are you having problems with your conscience condemning you? Then take
the prescription from the verse above and follow it. You will find by
following the prescription from this verse that your conscience can be
guilt free. It will be guilt free because God promises that He is
greater than anything else in life. When we do what God commands us to
do in order to overcome the condemning conscience, then He will drive
away Satan and those thoughts that try to condemn us.

Start living right today and you will see the things that used to
condemn your conscience will be driven away. A happy life is the result
of a guilt-free conscience.

This is Dusty's Diva in all her glory. About 4-4 1/2 inches of wool, this is the coat she grew while raising a litter. She was clipped after taking these pics, and gave 12.7oz of prime wool! The only care she needs is a butt clip to keep urine scald away and I have clipped her checks to keep them out of her water bowl. Right behind her ears as a little matted but nothing serious and came right out.

I kept 2 of her bucks Eli and Enoch and Jackie has the doe from her litter. I am fixing to breed Diva again, this warm weather has her in the mood. Just gotta figure out which one of my 2 black bucks would be a better fit. Hope your all enjoying the weather God Bless!

Rabbit Feed

The last 2 batches of Manna Pro I have bought the rabbits seem to not like, I have been finding more and more on the floor under the cages. So this weekend I went to the local TSC to look at feeds, we dont have much of a selection around here. I would love to find Pen Pals but no suck luck. My choices were Producers 15% protein or Purina 16% protein, other than the 2 kinds of Manna Pro they carry. I was feeding Manna Gro 18% but with all the issues I had with loosing babies I am afraid to switch back to a high protein feed. I ended up going with the Purina its the new formula they have for Rabbit Chow in a green bag. The only drawl back I have to this so far is it has corn in it. Now I really do not know the effects of corn but when I was in 4H we would feed hole cobs of corn to our rabbits and they never had any problems so I am hoping all will be good. Purina is a good feed so I am sure if there is a big issue with corn they would not put it in the feed. If I am wrong on this please let me know! So far its been 2 days and the rabbits are eating like they have never had pellets before. Rabbits that use to be very good eaters were leaving most of the Manna Pro and are now eating like hogs again. The babies that were scratching all their feed out on the floor seem to be eating more as well. So far I could not be happier but then again its only been 2 days. I was very disappointed they stopped eating the Manna Pro I have fed that for a couple years now and they have always done well on it. I have tried a couple different things here and there but always go back to Manna Pro. So really not sure whats going on this time but the bunns seem to love the new feed and its a nice small pellet that is very green and smells good. Its starting to look like spring is right around the corner, God Bless!
