    Worked on that flower bed and finished it for now. I am thinking of planting some shrubs there this fall.
    I got the ducks out and they foraged around a bit. Flew about 3 feet in a group, then ran back to the shed entrance. :D =D You just can't make this stuff up.
    Very happy to get out into the run and not be terrified by the tarp. I really interfered with their content life trying to make it cooler! :th

    Rose loves her new pasture! She was frolicking back and forth and walking the perimeter then she threw her head back and ran again!

    @ViolinPlayer123 You've incubated shipped eggs before right? I just bought 12+ polish frizzle hatching eggs that are suppose to arrive on the 10th.. Any tips on how to get a good hatch rate? I Might have a broody that i could put them under but just in case if I have to incubate them myself..
