Duck update

The ducks have grown and it's time for them to have a little space of their own (aka: they SMELL). They don't need the heat lamp anymore, and they need to be able to stretch and waddle around, so......

we moved them to the Chicken Coop now Duck Condo.

As soon as we got them settled, all three cats became extra-interested in this corner of the property. Nutmeg seemed to have been nominated Welcome Wagon Rep, for she tried her hardest to get up close and personal. We added extra fortification in front of the door to thwart her. So far, so good.

Now, the hawks that began screeching and circling in the afternoon are another story. We may need to add more chicken wire to the open-air section of the Duck Condo. As much as I love hawks, I have no intention of feeding them my duck friends.
