Welcome to the third Flock Friday! (Did you see the bonus ducklings on Monday?)
Firstly, a bird flying to the pole the camera is on. Not sure what kind… I want to say woodpecker, since I often see them on poles, but may not be (if you know, please tell me):
The bird flying away. Notice also a pigeon on the red feeder, with the roost folded down under its weight, which closes access:
On to the chicks; roosting together on the upper bar:
An assortment of chick pics; look at those feathers coming in!
The chicks discovered the roosting bars above the (blocked off) nesting boxes. Their first view outside, too:
Moving to the older chickens, a three-headed chicken dust bath:
A bunch of chickens in their run, watching me as I approached:
Some closer pictures of the chickens:
Merida on my lap:
Finally to the ducklings:
They’re getting so big!
I’m now leaving the paint tray pool in the duck house during the day, only removing it at night, so they can swim throughout the day. Next week, I’ll leave it there all the time, where it’ll remain until they can go outside (in about 3-4 weeks time).
