Happy Flock Friday! We’re still waiting for Sonja’s eggs to hatch; based on when she started full-time nesting, they’re due around today, though could be a few days away.
Here is Sonja on her nest last weekend:
A peek at her eggs; I see 15 there, but there could be more hidden under the straw. As with Betty, probably only a few of those will hatch:
Our pond, with Betty flapping her wings on the island, and her ducklings barely visible:
A closer look at Betty and her ducklings:
Did you see my blog post about adding more dirt to the island?
Ducklings and ducks on the far side of the pond:
A snake taking a swim; don’t see them often:
Ducks on the lawn by the brown gazebo and grove of trees:
Sonja taking a break on an upturned pot island, along with Betty and her ducklings:

They’re getting so big already!
Oh, I suppose I should include some token pictures of chickens too; the chickens are characters in their own way, but for some reason I take way more pictures of the ducks:
