Duck Bribery

As it happens, a duck will follow you anywhere for a bowl of peas!

I ordered them months ago to be sure of getting what I wanted and to be delivered at a time when I wasn’t dealing with new layers and the meat chickens.  I never expected, once they arrived, that their feed would have increased to $20.00 for a 50lb. bag.  I now have three laying hens and a rooster, my two pet geese (Polly and Fredrik) and the runner ducks.  I do hope some of those duckies are girls, so at least they can give me fresh eggs for baking.  But if not, they sure are taking down the bug and slug population and many of the weeds as well!

I used to give the eggs from all my laying hens to folks who needed them or just appreciated a good fresh egg.  However, since Covid nobody wants them anymore.  That’s sad, but in the end, it saves me on feed.

And on another note, I will share that even though I was not here, I did take pictures, shoot videos, and work in the garden daily.  I have a lot of material that never made it to my pages and would like to get it up here anyway.

Perhaps with some notation so you know the difference?
