Make Way for Ducklings

Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who made the morning
 and spread it over the fields...
watch now how I start the day in happiness,
 In kindness.
-Mary Oliver

The ducklings are getting bigger so quickly.  They really have a collective personality and are super entertaining.  Somehow they must think that we are all their mother because they tend to follow us around.  We have not yet built a structure for them to live in, still trying to figure our where poultry should permanently reside.  Here is a clip of the hilarious scene every morning getting them from the barn, where they sleep, to the chicken tractor where they spend the day. 

We also have 4 new chicks.  I know I said no more this season but I just couldn't resist.  Two Americaunas and two Wellsummers, hoping for more green and dark brown eggs to come!

  1. It's amazing how fast duckling grow! And they really aren't eating that much food compared to their size. But we also have ours free ranging so they probably are getting plenty of what they need in the garden.
