It’s Flock Friday again!
Here are the ducks, in a very leafy pond (before I scooped out a bunch):
The ducks going after mealworm treats:
A couple of closeups of the female buff duck, Gert:

A night swim:
The ducks on the lawn, rooting for bugs:
I had fun taking zoomed photos of the ducks. Here’s Bert:

A couple of nice shots of Gill, showing the green iridescence:
On to the chickens.
Unfortunately we lost another of the new chickens; Moana flew up to the top of the run fence, into the old run, and couldn’t figure out how to get back. She flew into the tree above the old run, and hasn’t been seen since. So she is officially missing, presumed dead. But maybe she’s off on some adventure somewhere. We haven’t had much luck with these new ones; we started with 8, and are now down to 4.
Here you can see Moana on the coop roof:
Here she’s in the foreground of the old run:
A pity; she was the most friendly of the new chickens.
Some shots of the remaining new chickens slurping up spaghetti:
The old chickens with treats:
Finally, hovering room only on one of the hummingbird feeders:
