The past few weeks have been busy here on our little farm. We added three female ducks to our mixed flock last fall and with the arrival of spring our male ducks suddenly realized they are male ducks. Those big bad boy ducks have been chasing the female ducks unmercifully, and sometimes they even turn their attention to our chickens. I started putting containers of water up on the tree so that the chickens can climb up there to drink, which gets them away from the bad boy ducks. Fortunately there are lots of climbing spaces in their chicken run so that they can get away from the ducks.
What else have we been up to? My husband has been outfitting a boat with motors and equipment and we were finally able to take it out for a test run the other day. While out there, he showed our daughter how to drive the boat.
