There. Duck Mama number one tucked into her enclosure. Food – water – duck – eggs. And no more visitors from other would be mama ducks.
When and if the eggs hatch I will make a corridor of the bales and gently walk the ducklings and their mama to the little hospital coop for the duration.
But I did not intend to have ducklings so that is enough intervention. The rest is up to Nature.
I ordered meat chickens today too. It is a bit quieter now. I think I can manage. Plus there is a lot more to feed fattening chickens in the late summer.
Hope your day is going well!
