Ducktales chapter 1

Ever since we went to the Kumeu Showgrounds poultry show, a certain someone in our family wanted ducks.
We finally organised some duck eggs and got some more from a local lady whose ducks had been laying frantically.
Meanwhile we bought an incubator. Should you ever go down the same road, please invest a bit more into a better incubator, the first one that arrived here did not even make it in one piece here.
Equipped with incubator and 20 duck eggs, we set out to start. A month later we were rewarded with the first duckling hatching.

A video a friend made in summer two years ago. The horse shelter was still under construction at that time. The flightover shows our alpacas in the lower paddock and gives an impression of our lovely hillside spot.

Crisp winter mornings are fun to watch with the fog and the clouds moving, building up and disappearing again.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.
