Flock Friday for August 2

Welcome to another Flock Friday!

Let’s start with the ducks. Here they are resting on the pond bank:

I mucked out the duck house, removing the paint tray wading pool, now that the ducks can go outside. Since they now spend almost all of their time outside (including overnight), just coming in to eat, I shouldn’t need to muck it out anywhere near as often, which will be nice:

I love having ducks on the pond. It’s a joy to see them through the trees as I approach the pond:

One thing I didn’t consider was that giving ducks their treats and feeding the koi at the same time can be problematic; the fish swim around the ducks, disturbing them, and the ducks eat the koi food once they’ve polished off their mealworms:

I’ve taken to feeding each a bit further apart, which helps somewhat.

In the house for a meal; interestingly you can see straight through the nostrils of the foreground duck:

On to the chicks, with an assortment of pictures. I should see if I can get them to play the xylophone:

Finally, the older chickens, enjoying a corn cob and other treats:
