Just rescued Kumquat officially on July Fourth. Am officially too attached and was convinced to make a separate account for him. @kumquattheteacupkitty is the account. If you want to see his recovery journey, follow it, he’s severely malnourished and is too old to be so small. Only 1 1/2 pounds and should be 5. Let’s get this recovery started!!🐾🐾 #rescuedkitten #newaccount #thankyouall #loveyou

These are some teenage ducklings that hatched earlier this year. They have to be Blue Swedish/Cayuga crosses, based on their coloring and the drakes most present, but a lot of them have a lot more white than normal, there’s five total, and two have adorable floofs on their heads! No idea where that comes from, genetics wise, but I’m not complaining! #duck #ducklings #unusualcolor #geneticsarecrazy #whoknows #ilovethem #cayuga #blueswedish #unknownparentage #barnyard #farmyard #farmlife #rurallife #katrinasbarnyard #thewalledgarden

Indigo my beautiful baby. She passed away a couple days ago from an unknown illness. It’s been a rough few months animal wise. This is always the worst part about having animals. #darlingbaby #geese #goose #lovethemall #restinpeace #iloveyousomuch #imsosorry Repost Indigo the little, full grown, baby, looking good in the mud, despite being awake all night from the wind! . . #geese #goose #gooses #muddyanimals #mudlover #babyanimals #littlegoof #littlegoose #ilovetheanimals #iloveher #farmlife #katrinasbarnyard

We have more!! Completely unexpectedly, they weren’t due yet, three beautiful yellow goslings hatched last night. All healthy. Momma Astrid is being a perfect mother. Not even mad at me for cuddling them! #goslings #geese #babygeese #ilovegeese #allhealthy #theyallmadeit #summerbabies #triplets #itshot #farmyard #barnyard #katrinasbarnyard #farmlife #poultry #waterfowl #goose #thewalledgarden

These are some of the completely feral cats I’ve been working on taming, and eventually catching+spaying. The little guy is Kumquat, the large black one is Gandalf. For the little flighty black and white female, I don’t have a name yet, let me know if you have a good one for her! They are doing so well and usually let me touch them now! 😆🐾 #feralcats #feralcatsofinstagram #tamingthecat #straycats #ilovethemall #katrinasbarnyard #thewalledgarden

This is one of my triplets. If you are in Washington State Skagit County area please be on the lookout for him and let me know. He’s missing and there’s no body or trail. It’s looking like someone took him. I am beyond messed up, I’ve never had a goat, baby or otherwise, be taken or killed. I don’t understand and his mom is extremely stressed out. I really need him back because I can’t stop thinking about where he is or what’s going on and I’ve been looking for hours. Please let me know immediately if you find anything. He’s mostly black with a large white stripe down his side and two white spots on the other side, not very defined spots. He’s a lot older than in these photos, he’s almost four months so a bit bigger than this. He’s the closest one in the photo with two kids, not the one with the white tipped tail. Thank you. #lostanimal #lostpet #lostfriend #lostbaby #pleasehelpmefindhim #kili #imcrying #imsoupset #thankyou

I think it will probably only be three goslings this year sadly. But they are a joy! Let me introduce Pidge, the dark grey one, Rover, the bright yellow, this one was the wry Neck gosling, and finally Shay, the big one! They love being outside and the water!! I love them so much already. #goslings #goslingsarethebest #iamamother #theydontlisten #thatsokay #babyanimals #babybirds #thebest

My geese have hatched three goslings so far and one of them possibly has Wry Neck. It’s not able to hold up it’s head etc, all the normal symptoms but it had a bit of a difficult hatching, mom was attacked during its hatching, and the issue could be genetic as well. Any help and advice on Wry Neck is appreciated. We are getting the needed minerals to treat it but any other tips would be great as I really want it to make it of course, since I’m now attached and invested. It’s name is Rover. Thanks #needhelp #wryneckgosling #gosling #babygeese #geese #thecutest

Happy to announce; Chicks!! Out of seven eggs, six have hatched thus far. I am not hopeful about the last egg, it doesn’t feel right, but we will see! P.S. in the second photo there are two chicks, see if you can spot them😂 #chicks #happyhen #babychicks #allhealthy #ithappened #yay

Bit of an interesting situation here. I try and get dog houses and etc for geese and ducks to nest in, they love using them, and this one I needed to do some extra work on so I left it in our silo barn, and we have some ducks that get out of the fence so I put some straw in it for them to use if they wanted to, until it was ready at least. Anyway Alexander my 15+ year old cat decided that this was his house, and that even though there was an egg, he wasn’t going to let any more ducks in. He guards it during the day and sleeps all curled up next to the egg, at least before I took it out! 😂 I love him. . . . #cats #oldcat #goosehouse #ducknest #duckegg #surprise #happyaccident #ilovemyanimals #wasntplanned #ohwell #iguessitsthecatsnow #farmlife #barnyard #farmyard #katrinasbarnyard #thewalledgarden
