In an update to the last post, the remaining ducks seem to have gotten the message and all 5 are still swimming around and seem pretty happy. A little more vigilant perhaps, but happy.
Well it only took 24 hours after bringing the ducks home before we lost one to a pesky fox. 🙁 Keeping our eyes peeled for other critters… It may be time to get a dog!
Good times a-plenty. On Friday Eric and I went to the State Fair in search of some really good people watching (CHECK) and possibly more birds (CHECK). All the big birds were gone and they were showing Bantams. They had some Silkies, which I have read make very good surrogate mothers in the event you […]
