Honky has been sitting on the duck egss for a few days but then sadly decided to abandon them and we hope not for a good reason.

Contrary to Honky, our frizzle hen Fluffy has been broody for several weeks and been sitting on no eggs – chicken brains are funny.

So we decided we give it a go and shoved the three duck eggs under her. She’s been a happy chicken now for two weeks and very protective on top.

Let’s see what comes out of the eggs.

Winter Solstice & Matariki

The weather has turned from somewhat wet and warm to rather wet and cold. The horses have been rugged up just like the goats. The rodent infestation has become noticeable, so we started putting up more traps on top of the traps and bait stations we already had.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Springtime again and lovely weather

It’s so nice to get outside between rain break. The weather has been warming up over the the last days and we are getting 20 deg during the day.

I picked a few pictures to keep you entertained and maybe – once we are out of lockdown – you may want to drop by for a stay and enjoy some time off. We will be opening in level 2.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.
