Nest box


Built a new nest box this weekend out of a scrap peice of plywood.Put old carpet pad in the bottom for a liner,going to put wood chips in also. Not having any luck with my duck eggs hatching, so far they haven't been fertile. I made their pond a little deeper maybe that will help. Any advice anybody has will be appreciated. Our blue swede duck started laying too, her eggs are not as big as our pekin's. Maybe some of hers will be fertile. Our easter egg pullets should start laying any day now, can't wait to see what color they are!! Kitty our handicapped brown leghorn should too, don't know if it will take a little longer because of her deformities or not. If she's real hungry she'll fly up on your shoulder. I still have to feed her seperate from the others, she can only eat mash and it's got to be deep.

Winter coop



Fixed up part of our shed for a coop this winter, our other one was getting too small and didn't keep them warm very well. Since we have ducks this winter we had to change to a different waterer. Ducks will empty a regular chick water in a matter of minutes. Sure not going to have to walk through the mud to feed and water any more.

Beadwork


We were do some cleaning this weekend and I found some items I'd been saving. When I was a teen I was in scouts and use to  dress up as indians and dance at different events and parades etc. I ran across some beadwork that I had done. Brought back memories. And no, Dianne never saw me dance!!!
