DeDUCKation – the daily routine

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.

A sad day on the farm

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.

Pretty visitors at times

Sometimes we have pretty little visitors, like those rosellas, parakeets or phesants. Today some rosellas flew by and landed on the deck balustrade.
