Stockpiling

We are eagerly anticipating the impending birth of our first batch of muscovy ducklings.  




While momma #1 spends her days tending her nest, another of the girls is stockpiling eggs.  There's 22 in the tire, which is around the same amount that the grey duck is sitting on.  I'm expecting one of the brown ducks to start sitting on this clutch soon.  That leaves us with two more girls to get their own nests ready.




We should have our incubator up and running by the end of the week.  I've mixed the australorp flock in with the orpingtons so it'll be a mixed bag of chicks if we can successfully hatch them out.

Baby time on the farm.  It's so exciting!
