This chirpy little miracle is ‘Little Niki’, a Cayuga Buff Orpington X our ducks didn’t have enough patience to hatch their eggs, so we put them under our broody hen Fluffy.

A few days ago we found this little chirp under Fluffy’s wings. A duckling hatched by a chicken…

Unfortunately it survived only for 2 days and is now buried in close proximity to our other rescue ducks that did not make it.

So sad.

Crisp winter mornings are fun to watch with the fog and the clouds moving, building up and disappearing again.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.
