A little chirp

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.

Alpaca checkup

Drove down into the valley today to check up on the alpacas and the cheeky moo.

Hard work weekend

A weekend of alpaca shearing, vet attendance, fixing fences and water troughs.

Rescue or resident ducks?

Over the last couple of weeks several female Mallard ducks have been released back into freedom. The two which we released two weeks ago have turned into a permanent resident feature.
