The newest arrival at Auriga is a Australorpe X Rhode Island Red hen. A great layer who stands out in our flock of pure bred Light Sussex hens. The Light Sussex hens object to the colder weather so this little hen plus a new pure bred Australorpe keep a few eggs rolling in over the coldest months.

Auriga Llama girls: The Gem and Little Rock travelled to Llama Magic today to meet stud boys Wizard and Rubin. Everything going well, we will be welcoming two new crias to our herd in 11.5 months.
It’s New Years Day and a holiday at Auriga. Hot temperatures mean that a pool party at the dam was in order for everyone with swimming and sunbaking. It’s a hard life being a llama around here 😉

1500 Physalis peruviana (Golden Berry/Inca Berries/Cape Gooseberries)) all off to their new home. The greenhouse looking more spacious now and ready for hundreds of Murtilla – Myrtus ugni (Chilean Guava) cuttings and seedlings.
A peaceful Christmas to you all from Auriga.
