Some leafy treats in the morning, misting to cool off in the early afternoon, and escape from the run in the late afternoon!

In the late afternoon, a duckling squeezed under the gate while rooting in the mud:
She was followed by a couple of others. When I reassembled the run I had bricks under the gate to prevent that, but I removed them as I didn’t think they could fit; apparently I was wrong!
I saw a duckling outside on the cam, and went out there to find three sitting outside the gate; it seems they hadn’t figured out how to get back in. I opened the gate, and they were eager to go back in.
Here’s a picture from the cam of a duckling going under the gate:

Another one going under the gate:
I added the bricks back, so they won’t be able to do that again!
