The chickens and ducks are laying eggs like crazy. I have stopped taking out eggs as I would love to have some more chickens and ducks on the yard. I have had one baby duck hatch so far but decided to leave it with mommy and sadly,the next morning it was gone! Lesson learnt! I have 5 mature hens of which 3 are brooding currently, my baby chicks survival rate has been 100% so far,it looks like my chickens are better mums than the ducks. In fairness I have only 2 ducks brooding at the moment!
The newly hatched baby duck who arrived late one afternoon and was gone the next morning......
This hen has scored the jackpot! She is brooding on about 17 eggs!
Just an update on the goats, see these ewes have an "L" for Liesl tagged on their ears! Thank you Cules! xoxo
