A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
I arrived home from Bible Study last Monday and Rachel told me, “The ducklings are in the furthest Bantam run.” To be fair, she had asked about getting ducks. I had just absentmindedly said “sure.”
Tuesday morning I went out to check on the various fowl in the back yard. The ducklings had managed to escape their run and were visiting the chickens.
I hope this is not an omen of things to come.
They are really quite cute and very different from chickens. They have rounded beaks and walk with their necks stretched out. It makes me think of an elegant swan rather than a goofy chicken.
We have a small tub for them to use for now. Eventually we will get a child’s swimming pool.
Perhaps I can write another one titled The Ducks of Miller Farm.
