Our new ducks have been temporarily located on our front lawn 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.
the amount of rain we had over the last few days is extraordinary - at least on a subjective level. The occasional hours of sunshine in between evaporate the water quickly, hence yesterday we had 30 deg C. with 80% relative humidity.
Fascinating to see the difference in eggs when I put some of ours into the egg carton too. Keep in mind that our chicken are mostly ex-battery hens that once used to produce those cage eggs. They were not considered good and productive enough for the batteries and hence would have been culled if we had not taken them.
The last winter has been so terribly wet and turned all paddocks into mud that we decided to have the horses in a shelter and feed them rather than having them wading through mud and effectively thrashing the paddocks.
