Flock Friday for June 12

This past week has been exciting with the baby ducklings, but I also got a bunch of pictures of the adult duck, Bert, and the chickens.

This post is about the adults, but let’s start with a check in on the ducklings; here’s them a week ago:

And yesterday; look how much they’ve grown already:

A picture of the ducklings and Bert:

I feed him his breakfast in this spot, as the food sinks to the bottom, and there’s a shallow ledge there, as more visible in the previous picture, when the water level was lower; it’s easer for him to eat from the water than on land:

Some pictures of the chickens while I was installing the compost bins:

An animated GIF of a heron taking off, when I went out there to chase it:

Bert drinking water accumulated in the paint tray that will be used by the ducklings next week:

He went up the ramp and tapped on the pop door. Sorry, that’ll stay closed for several more weeks, until the ducklings are old enough to go into the pond (at about 8 weeks old):

I moved the log, and they enjoyed some tasty worms underneath:

Another day, I offered fun apple peel treats:

Bert was watching with interest outside the chicken run (I did offer some apple peel to him, but he didn’t want it):
