Duck moving day

Temporary lasts!

Our new ducks have been temporarily located on our front lawn and as as with all temporary things, they last far too long. So after a few months and completely destroying our lawn, the ducks finally moved onto the paddock next to the chicken.

Socialising with chicken?

We tried to bring ducks and chicken together but the socialising only lasted a few minutes until 3 or 4 chicken went onto each duck and beating the hell out of them – did not work that well.

So now they are next to each other and can see each other. The chicken where not really keen on having them close by and were making lots of noise, however have settled now a day later.

The plan is to eventually bring them together into one area, we’ll see how this will be going. Guess we will post an update on that at some stage.

The storm that was supposed to come was not too bad after all. A bit of rain that we loved very much and quite some wind with a bit of thunder and lightning. All that would have been easy to take, if it wasn’t for: Moonshine.
