Well, I guess it’s official, as of a couple of weeks ago. In case you hadn’t heard, Cimarron and Courtney Marrs of Amarillo have embarked upon a courtship. We enjoyed having her and her sister, Mackenzie visit this weekend.

Guess what we found in the finch cage this morning? The female, creamy, has begun to lay more eggs. Needless to say, we don’t want her to hatch out any more birds right now. So, we took the egg away. Her six fledglings are growing rapidly and eating on their own. If you’re interesting in getting a pair of zebra finch, use the contact form to let us know.

I’ve been working on switching over to a regular blog format for the ShannonRanch news for a while now. There was a pretty significant learning curve and a lot of hair pulling for me in getting it done. I’ve been so used to creating my website with Frontpage software which enables me to do anything, move anything, and change anything so easily, that I’ve really been challenged by the blog-in-a-box structure of wordpress. However, with some research and study, I was able to tweak it enough to add a little personality. It’s still a work in progress, but I hope that by using an existing blog format, I’ll feel a bit more connected to my readers. Now you’ll be able to comment, follow me and even sign up to get an email when I post something new. Let me know what you think and any suggestions that you have. Thanks for reading the news. Windy
