Spring has sprung but it would appear that it has temporarily left us.

We only had 5 degrees this morning. It was crisp and cold and there was fog over the Kaipara stream so you could exactly see where it runs. I though we would not need the heating any more, however it turns out we still do. That’s somewhat unexpected.

Rescue or resident ducks?

Over the last couple of weeks several female Mallard ducks have been released back into freedom. The two which we released two weeks ago have turned into a permanent resident feature.

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.
