|Sally the duck,do ducks bite? she acts as though she is going to bite me|
|This picture is today,Aug.19.One allowed me to hold & pet her today.It is hard to reach them in this coop.|
|she is laughing because she is secretly afraid of getting poked in the eye|
|July 18th they were moved outside|
This was the last of my bucket list,to have chickens.I ordered the chicks some time ago from Meyers Hatchery & on July 11 they were delivered to the post office.Everyone at the post office were oooing & ahhhing over the small chrips from inside the box. We got them home & with some special help from my son,we got them situated in a galvanized tub in my bird room.They had sent me 10 when I only ordered 8 hens & 1 rooster,but I was glad as the 1 little yellow hen did not make it.I ordered some that will lay the blue & maybe pink eggs.
The chicks grew really fast quickly! & soon we were taking them to the outside hutch my late husband had made me for the bunnies who now live indoors in the birds room,too hot for them outdoors.
My granddaughter was given a duck during the Path Valley barnyard games,so now we have a duck to add at some point,lol,I hope I can put Sally the duck in with the chickens at some point.Sally smells.
|2 days later,see how much they grew!|
