We started incubating some duck eggs in March and counted down the days until "hatch day" which was April 10th. About a week before our ducklings hatched we got 6 chicks.
Hatch day was a very exciting day at our house!!!
She enjoys hanging out with the boys...
And the ducks enjoy following Matias wherever he goes!
2 dogs, 3 Tunis Ewes, 1 lamb, 2 Ducks, 5 Chicks (yes, we lost one), 4 Hens (should start laying any day now), 1 rabbit, and we are still growing! We plan to add a few more hens and ducks, and of course sheep!
We are enjoying the longer days, and finally warmer days. There is so much work still to do be done on the house and the "farm" itself, and between our "real jobs" and raising the boys life is a bit crazy, but we are blessed and starting to feel at home in our new home. I so enjoy the early mornings walks down to the barn to give Georgia her bottle. Hearing the birds chirp, marveling in the beauty of the early morning sky, as well as other wildlife on our property. The other morning a pheasant and I almost collided as I rounded the corner of the house! We were both surprised!
Now if I can be so cheerful about early morning chores when it is below zero with 2 ft of snow on the ground remains to be seen!
