Mother duck and the ducklings

If you read chapter 1, then you know about the ducklings that we hatched out of an incubator.

While lot 2 is now in the making, the little ducks have grown bigger and since Jolan has been looking after then so well, they seem to recognise her as their mother duck.

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.
