Our family is growing!

So last weekend we went to Temecula with a big ole grocery shopping list. Out here, we go grocery shopping every 2 weeks. So the list is very calculated according to what dinners, snacks, lunches, breakfasts we will be having for the next two weeks. And I have my path through Winco that I go, so I itemize my list according to how I jet through the store.
Anyway, I had my list in hand, we were dropping Colt off at a friends' house, it was all set. But Nathan had a different plan. He was calling ranches in Temecula while I was working on my shopping list to pick up more animals.
So a whole afternoon later, and no Winco trip, we came back with 5 more hens, a rooster, and two goats. All in hubby's truck. In fact, we even went through a Mcdonald's drive through with the sweet little goat on my lap!
Can anybody else say they went into town for a grocery shop, but came back with livestock instead??.....You know you're a Redneck when....

So the new colorful Hens are really cool. They lay brown and green eggs. The Goats are Nubian goats. The black is female and the brown is male. We named them Peggy and Al. Girl goats cycle twice a year (that's when they most likely get pregnant if there's a dude around) and the rancher that we bought her from said she is most likely pregnant. Soooo....that means, after she has her baby, we get milk! And supposedly she has very silky udders. (A selling point? If you're goat shopping?)
