In other non-animal related news I'm finally moving!
The animals should be moved over within the next two weeks or so and we are debating on whether to use electric fencing for the pigs. They did fine for a little while at Jeff's Aunt's but Toony ended up breaking out repeatedly so Jeff put the welded wire fencing back up. The fencing had grass growing up around it though so I think the current was being interrupted.
There is a bit of a snake and mice infestation at our new place so I'm thinking of getting some Guinea Fowl when I order chickens. I've heard they deter rodents and will go after and kill snakes - which will make Jeff happy. I have placed an order with Sand Hill Preservation Center for October 30th for their Autumn Hatch Special, which should contain a variety of chickens and guineas. I've never gotten chicks via mail order before so we will see how it goes (Edit: I never ended up placing the order). By October Jeff should have a space set aside in one of the barns to brood and keep the chicks until the spring - no more basement chicks for me.
I'm so excited to FINALLY be moving! I'm not looking forward to making the eight hour drive at eight months pregnant though. I have my mom following me down with the cats and chinchilla - my two dogs are riding with me. I just hope my one spazzy dog Luna behaves herself on the drive.
