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.

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.
