On morning rounds, I found a couple treasures! My ducks usually start laying eggs in January and I hadn’t checked their nest boxes in a few days.
My little gray call duck hen has quite the nest built, but no eggs yet.
My snowy hens on the otherhand have 3 eggs in their nest.
Ellie had these cuties at some point during the night.
The little girl is so petite. She is a lilac and her name is Demure. I love her face 🙂 The boy is much bigger and I can’t tell if he is lilac or not?
The color on his lips definitely isn’t black, but around his eyes it is much darker. I will have to take him outside today and see if I can tell for sure. His name is Journey.
My ewes are being so nice!!! They are taking turns in the favorite lambing spot every 12 hours or so. I’m sure it will be different next week, but I am really appreciating it for now.
This is Venture and he was born Thursday afternoon.
His mom is Painted Rock Jeslyn and Wrangler is his dad.
Pretty soon the pastures are going to be hopping with little spotted lambs!
