Sights from around Crooked Acres (ducks and chickens)
This hen is tired of your shenanigans.
As part of his daily chores, Fred sprays the ducks, because they love it so much.
Especially the girl duck.
Then they head over to the pool. (Yes, they have a great big pond to paddle around in, and they ALSO get a freshly-filled pool. Because SPOILED.)
Girl duck jumps in first and does some bathing.
Boy duck thinks about it for a moment.
And in he goes.
She preens and he flaps.
While the rooster looks on disapprovingly.
These hens ADORE their dust baths. I should take a picture of all the dust-bathing holes they’ve made.
We have a couple of bird baths on the ground closer to the house, and not only do the birds love it, so does this little toad. He’s almost always there, hanging out and keeping damp.
There’ll be more Crooked Acres pictures next week!
I’ve got a few last pictures of Webster and Felix to share today and tomorrow. Cindy reports that they are doing great, and they wasted no time in gettin’ snuggly and making themselves at home!
A blurry “Hallo, innernets!”
Last nap time with the boys.
Felix, needing a kiss.
“Hi, innernets! Just gettin’ a snuggle!”
Air-kneading. That boy is something else. They both are!
“Um. A…. big wind! Came along! And tossed me up here!”
“Now how do I get down?!” (Fred gave him a helping hand.)
Felix playing with Uncle Stefan.
