ducks

about 5 weeks ago – sorry i didn’t post sooner!- we got pekin ducks! we also got Cornish rock chickens- i will post in a wile. at first, we got two ducks, but then we went back to the store and got eleven more ducks, so now we have 13 ducks!the females and a male we can keep over the winter, so we can hatch baby ducklings! we have not seen baby ducklings yet, because the ducks we got were a week old, so we are very excited about hatching baby ducklings!

chicken name!

Astra’s chick has a name now! its name is rural. we think it is a boy, but we hope it is a girl. rural looks just like Astra. i wonder is soaring – eagle had hatched them, they would have looked like her, or gotten some of her magic. soaring – eagle had magic to escape anything! she was a small jersey giant chicken. we think she used her energy to get magic instead of growing

missin chicken

soaring- eagle is missing! she is black, with rainbow sparkles if she is in the sun. she is a jersey giant( not very big!). if you think you see her, Keep her safe, and comment, “got her.”. pleas find her!

hatchling!

Astra hatched a chick!it is white. it is a green queen- breese chicken cross. or a rusty- queenington cross. we named it a rural- queen. its name is-okay it has been weeks, and i cant think of a name for it! post in the comments what you think it’s name should be!

soaring eagle & queenington.

soaring eagle & queenington are getting pecked on by the turkeys. queenington is okay, but we had to put soaring eagle in the chick tractor! her neck has a bald spot, but she will be okay. we are making a about 100 by 100 pasture for them, so they should not do it for much longer.

hummus and radish.

Astra is broody!
