Flock Friday for May 1

For Flock Friday this week, chickens and ducks, of course, plus a bathing bird, and a fake bird.

Chickens on the potato planters in the veggie garden. Enjoy it while you can, girls; you’ll be evicted soon, when we’re ready to start planting:

I shared a picture of the chickens with drone frames in my recent bee post, with a followup in the subsequent post; here are a couple more photos of them not sure about the frames, before getting stuck in:

To help discourage visits by the heron, I added a fake one on the edge of the pond:

  2. Has the fake heron been successful? How would you know? Does the absence of the real heron mean it’s been scared away, or has it migrated somewhere else?

    You need some more ducks.
