Our First Egg!

Every morning I check the nesting box, unsure the ducks even know how to use it. There is actually a fake egg in there- the guy who sold me the coop said it was an “encouragement” egg. I tried not to roll my eyes. But, this morning when I opened up the hatch, I was surprised to see another egg there.

I can’t tell you whose egg it is – both Blue Swedish and Rouens have bluish eggs. But good to see someone in this house is earning their keep.

Bonus kitteh:

Zander has been on squirrel patrol all week, here he is scolding the squirrel for daring to come down the tree:

Ducks or Dogs?

The ducks made it clear when they arrived that when the dogs eat, they eat.

They also prefer dog food, no matter how many duck crumbles I add to it, I usually end up dumping most of them out every few days.

In the video, I’m shaking their bowl, but only to get them to look at the camera. All I need to do is step outside and say “breakfast” or “dinner” and they are front and center.

I feed them away from the dogs because they have no problems going up to the dog bowls and pushing their way in. Both dogs back off, unhappily, but I don’t want to risk there being any snapping at the intrusion.

Funny thing, when I was uploading this video, this video of Bixby popped up and I noticed it had 6.6K views. Whaaaattt???
