While I had some doubts that Jolan would really be looking after the little ducks, I have to say that she really lives up to it. Every day she gets the little – well, not so little any more now – ducks out of the night quartier out into the chook house and run. She cleans the container and feeds them and clean up after them. That’s dedication at work.
DeDUCKation – the daily routine
Today was a sad day at Pukeatua Farmstay. We had to say goodbye to Peekie, our female Buff Orpington Duck. She was all well last night and this morning we found her in a corner of the duck run. She must have died overnight.
Most animals stick to electric fences – our alpacas do not.
Sometimes we have pretty little visitors, like those rosellas, parakeets or phesants. Today some rosellas flew by and landed on the deck balustrade.
