June has had a rather emotional start for us; first with losing our fostered meat breed roosters, Velvet and Violet, only four days apart. They lived much longer than we ever expected and outweighed the turkeys, Larry and Mo. It is crazy to see what selective inbreeding has done to “meat“ birds; they reach their slaughter weight at only 6 weeks old rather than 6 months old like they did back in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Sir Nick, our 14-year-old goat has CAE (Caprine arthritis encephalitis, a chronic joint disease with no known cure) which is getting progressively worse. His right front knee has gotten much sorer in the last couple of weeks so we tried a new vet service and are so happy to have someone take the time to give us more information about it. We are trying a new set of medications, including an injectable Medicam to see if we can get this recent flare-up under control and then will try knee injections to see if we can make him more comfortable. He is still eating and mentally seems okay but if we can’t make him more comfortable we will have to think about what is the next best thing for him. He has had a really great long life here.

Right now, we have Elvis, the duck, recovering from surgery on both feet to remove Bumblefoot, a nasty infection commonly found in chickens, turkeys and ducks. We take him back to the vet today to have his dressings changed and the areas affected examined. He is eating and starting to walk around the house…leaving us some messy presents!

To top off the week, we found a stray, white dog on our property, soaking wet and starving, so for now he is residing in our other bathroom. We will be in touch with LAPS in the morning to see if anyone has reported him missing. He is a very sweet, older dog.

Thank you all for your kind donations; you make it easier for us to do what we do at the best of our ability. And did I mention we got a new goat house? ( just in case) Finally, the highlight of my week…our wonderful volunteer Nina, baked us 2 dozen muffins and left us her FANTASTIC basil hummus while I was at the vet clinic with Elvis when he was having surgery! We feel so spoiled!!!!!
