Sometimes I dislike any “timeline memories.” They can be a let down if, for example, Spring never exists and you go straight from Winter to Summer.
A lot can happen in a year.
Since our other female duck was turned into a fox feast, we have had 2 drakes and 1 hen trying to live harmoniously together. It’s been a tad rough with them adjusting and I can tell you, each egg that hen lays is DEFINITELY fertilized… NOTE: THIS POST IS NOT FOR THE FAINT AT HEART….
Part of the Homesteading process is acquiring animals; though, I am sure you can have a vegetarian homestead. When you have animals, however, you have a higher sense of responsibility to take care of another living being. Something with a pulse. You grow attached, you may name them, and one day that life comes to…
After a few months crammed into an oversized storage bin (they had more than the recommended amount of room, trust me), our not-so-little ducklings are moving on up!
Hear ye, hear ye! I’d like to announce that we have 2 drakes and 2 hens here at Ferngully! Our not-so-little ducklings are now roughly 4 months old. One more month, and maybe we’ll have our first egg (fingers crossed).
My Grandfather had ducks, my Uncles hunted ducks; basically, I had a love for water foul at a pretty young age (not the cutest kid, I know… also, very mischievous [notice I am standing in water on a colder day]). Bad Sam!!!
