A Warmer Wednesday

Whew, 55 degrees at 5:47 PM... much better than yesterday! 

Look what I found in the henyard this morning: 

I should have taken a picture of them in situ, and will, tomorrow.  

As you see, one duck has again laid an egg as big as a goose egg, and it has to be the Pekin, or the third Khaki.  As you also see, the eggs are no longer green.  I attribute this to the fact that the "girls" are no longer on grass, as they were in their former home.  

What happens when you leave the hose running and run inside the henhouse for a minute. 

This was a stunning surprise! 

It's Fancy, my three year old Porcelain D'Uccle rooster, who lives in the rafters of the henspa, and literally no longer comes down. 

There must have been a battle royal this morning with some of the younger roosters, because he was OUTSIDE and appeared to be enjoying it.  I hope so... he was meant to be the boss of the henspa, originally. 

I'll be going out there tonight and netting him if he can't figure out how to get back inside. 

It doesn't take long for the ducks to jump right into their clean pool! 

That's it for a thankfully warmer day at Calamity Acres! 


  1. Such an nice place for your fowl! Cute little steps up to the pool too. I could sit and watch them for hours.

  2. Hopefully it will warm up the next few days! We actually had a little bit of snow in the night. I've never heard of snow this late in April!! Of course it quickly melted.

  3. hehehe, does that count as 2 chicken eggs!

  4. I am so glad that you have a warm day today. Such a nice hen yard.


I love comments!
