It’s Friday… you know what that means!
The ducks in one of their favorite spots, next to the duck house:
Eating inside the duck house:
Treats for ducks and fish:
They don’t go on the south bank very often; a bit harder to get up there:
Treats on the pond bank:
On the pond edge next to the duck house:
One of the feral cats checked out the ducks. Hard to see, but she’s on top of the big rock behind the ducks:
I went out there when I saw that. I don’t know whether or not a cat would attack a duck, but I figured I’d be sad if she did and I didn’t go out. She left when I approached. I suspect that a cat wouldn’t go after a duck unless desperate, especially when they’re together and alert, but better safe than sorry.
Did you see the YouTube video of ducks swimming underwater? Quite impressive!
I moved the mobile cam to the rock by the duck house, for a better vantage point. In due course I’ll add a permanent cam, once I figure out the ideal location. Peeking at the camera:
Just one picture of the older chickens this time, inside their coop. Here Merida is eating from the top of the second feeder:
Chicks eating in their coop:
Finally, a couple more pictures of most of the chicks; they’re getting so big!
