My friend Mary came over to get some mohair carded. We mixed it with some merino to make it easer for her to spin later. I have never done mohair before. It was very fluffy. It added a lot of volume to the batts.
This is the batt. It is not as compact as a straight merino batt. If you wanted it more blended you would split the batt into layers and put it through it again.
She also had some left over bits from other projects that we carded together.
Now for the surprise. My son came in from feeding the bottle lambs there lunch with a very noisy bucket.
We have a rogue chicken and she hatched 11 chicks in a hidden nest in the barn. They are now in a box with water that they splashed everywhere and some food that tastes best if you stand in it.
It will be interesting to see how they turn out. They will get a pen next to the older chicks today. They can’t be left with mom or they will not survive. Between the barn cats and the wild predators they all disappear when we have let them try to raise them.
