|Literally I guess too.....|
The ducks love "bug finding" in the woods.
Today "Miss Grey Duck" (she doesn't have a name :-) went broody. She wanted to sit on the 5 eggs in her nest. I wasn't ready. Not enough pens for broody hens -- chicken or duck. And the chicks growing in the garage needed to get outside. So, the garage chicks got moved to the duck house today, of course then the ducks needed a new pen. .....and I still don't know where the duck can go broody and not be bothered by the others. I'll have to keep picking up eggs until I'm ready to figure it out.
|The chicks are now in the duck shed/pen which is rather open,|
so, a garage sale $10.00 dog house is now their brooder.
It's suppose to be cold and rainy the next few days.
|The ducks are now in a temporary pen between the |
"chick shed" and the chicken run. They don't have a shed but they
always sleep out in the open anyway. I'm just hoping the fox doesn't make
a trip through the place tonight.
Five ducks, twenty-three meat chicks and 5 pullets (will be layers) all in their new housing.
