This week, the ducks walked across the back lawn to meet me a few times, the chickens got their favorite treat, the heron visited again, and more.
Oh, and for anyone who doesn’t follow my personal blog, Dejus: because everyone could use a bit more joy at present, I’m posting a moment of cuteness every day. Which will include additional duck and chicken pictures not posted here, plus feral and pet cats, our dog Rory, and other cute things from around the homestead. So you might enjoy following the Dejus blog, or its RSS feed, or cross-posts on Micro.blog, on Twitter, or on Facebook.
Anyway, on with today’s Flock Friday. Here are the ducks in their house:

Quacking and walking back to their house:
A couple animated GIFs of the ducks on the path to the duck house (different than the one posted on my personal blog):
Chickens staring at me, waiting for treats:
It was worth the wait; rice is their all-time favorite treat, after mealworms:
Another frosty morning, and again the ducks running over the lawn to see me:
Quacking at me by the chicken runs:

Finally, since Jenn hasn’t been going to work due to COVID-19, and the chickens are laying about a dozen eggs per day at present, we’re accumulating lots of eggs. Here are four dozen, washed and ready to make into a heap of breakfast burritos this morning:
We’ll work on thinking of other meals to eat up the eggs. Let me know if you have any recommendations.
Stay safe, stay home, everyone!
