Chickens and Ducks

Posted on Updated on

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.20161210_161101IMAG0328IMAG0353IMAG0468IMAG0497IMAG0505IMAG0592IMAG0549IMAG0706IMAG0744IMAG0763IMAG0835IMAG0846IMAG0877IMAG1210IMAG1256IMAG1499IMAG1551
