Hot days – Ducking down

Yesterday was such a hot day that the ducks did not come out from their shady space underneath their house. Only in the late evening when the sun went down and temperatures did too.

What a lovely summer but hot it is.

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.
