BirdsNest We bought 6 baby ducks! Hagar really wanted these and they are all hens so they will add to our other egg laying ducks. They are very cute...Khaki Campbell. He also wanted some baby chicks but I had to say no on those. Having 2 separate enclosures for babies was too much. The ducks are messy enough.

MeiDei What a smart move - got sticker shock yesterday with the price of eggs. May they produce enough for your needs with extras to share or sell!

Gram77 My sister-in-law just purchased chicks. She says they will begin laying in July. She says when she lets them out every morning they scamper behind her everywhere she goes. They got into the horse barn (Tennessee Walkers ) the other day and it was the first the horses had seen them. She said the horses were literally pasted way up to the front of their stahls frozen with fright. I would have loved to see that.
BirdsNest I was worried about being gone all day yesterday and leaving the baby ducks. I do not trust ANYONE to care for my animals. No one. I tried to think of every angle and came up with a good solution. They had heat if they needed it and water to play in and at a certain time the fresh water for drinking ran out but they had the water they splashed out of the fountain waterer to piddle in and stay hydrated and happy. Left here at 3:45am got home at 9:15pm. They were the first thing I checked when I stepped foot back on the property. They were fine but happy to see me and happier for fresh water to play in and drink and dry food. Ducks are funny, don't like wet food and love to splash water everywhere. And they have to be able to get in and out of any water container that is put before them. If they cannot get out they will drown. Anyway all is well on the homefront for the plants and animals, just missing one important ingredient-Hagar. He will be in hospital for a few days.
Balogreene My niece and nephew in OK. They are both Bordadors (Border Collie/Labrador ). Daisy, left, is almost 8, Timmy, right, is 6 months. Timmy wants so much to play, Daisy wants to be left alone. I was with them for a week. Timmy wishes his parents smoked, and went out every hour to play with him. Daisy does too.
