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.

A visit to the cow

We did a roundtrip down the hill for pine cone collecting, fence fixing, alpaca seeing and moo encounter.

Alpaca checkup

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