And so the craziness continues with the Frenchies!!
Every day is a virtual Easter Egg Hunt.
(see Friday's post)
So it is no surprise that while Hubbs was trimming back the ornamental grass
beside the barn greenhouse,
we came upon this....
hidden in the middle of a mound of grass.
Sadly, they are of an unknown age and will have to be composted.
Who knows where else I might find more hiding places!
It has been quite a while since we have visited the ducks.
(Well, actually I visit them every day...but you haven't seen them in a while!)
Earlier in the summer you may remember that a few of my young ducks
from this Spring's hatching (of which there were 16)
had developed a condition known as Angel wing.
This is the result of a diet too high in protein,
which happened because we were feeding our fish
and the ducks were stealing fish food.
Only one of our ducks has permanent Angel wing.
Happily the rest corrected themselves.
This condition causes the duck no harm...
just looks funny.
I have read that you can tape their wings in place to correct it,
if you do so early enough.
Catching this duck would be next to impossible,
and since she is not handicapped by the condition,
we have let well enough alone.
And last, but not least, I have to tell you...
the piglets are growing like weeds.
I estimated their weight at about 15 lbs when we brought them home.
Now they weigh at least 25 lbs.
They come when I call them...
"Here pig pig pig," I call when they are out and they come running over to me.
They have been such a fun addition to the farm!
Finally, I wanted to share with you a silly picture
of Becky's Sid....
He's quite the comedian!
Hope I gave you a smile for today...
now, go and have a great one!
