Cuckoo style eggs

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.

I love details, hence macro photography is always a cool thing for me.
Here’s a picture of one of our common visitors, a praying mantis. While common, I still find them fascinating little critters.

Ducks versus cats versus chicken

Funny to see the cat getting quite intimidated by the arrival of the ducks behind her and starting to freak and run away when one of the ducks started picking the cat’s tail.

It’s been a long time we had some cute calfies arriving here. Yesterday was the day 3x cute new calfies arriving. They walked down the driveway into the shelter and are now happily mixing and mingling with the horses.
