It’s been almost 4 months that we got chicks and ducklings. The ducklings were an impulse buy, they were just too cute! Watching them all grow and have their own personalities has been quite entertaining. There were chicken coops on our property when we bought it so that is one thing we didn’t have to do, although after seeing how attached I became to them and how many birds of prey we have visit our yard my hubby built a large run since we don’t feel comfortable letting them free range. I do want to remodel the inside of the coop now since the ducks are so attached to the chickens they refuse to sleep in their own house now and sleep with the chickens instead. Here are some pictures from day 1 until now. Meet Hilda, Lucy, Ethel, Loretta, Wilma and Betty. And the ducks George (white, she is female) and Maggie.
Seeing the wildlife around our home never gets old. We have barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, bald eagles, hawks and several other bird species. We have also seen deer but haven’t had to opportunity to get a picture yet. To sit on our back porch and watch the owls and listen to their calls is amazing.
We have been in our new home for about 7 months. We love it! We have many projects we are working on.
It’s been a while since I last posted but I have been exploring some places around town. That’s the good thing about central Florida, there is always something to do. My son and I went here a few weeks ago and it was just awesome. He is 14 and even he loved it. I got a really good close ups of a pileated woodpecker, one of my most favorite birds. They did shy away from us and we spent a lot of time just observing them.
