For Flock Friday this week, an assortment of chicken and duck pictures, plus more of nesting ducks and broody chickens.

Some of the chickens want in on the fun; there are currently three broody chickens… though they’re wasting their time, since we haven’t had a rooster in years, so the eggs are unfertilized:
