Last week I picked up three beautiful Pekin ducks to add to my flock of Pekins. I already had a pair of them that I picked up as ducklings in February. They turned out to be a pair. So when I picked up these three I was thrilled to find out they are three females. We are hoping to get some eggs from them in the next few months so we can hatch a batch before the weather gets to cold. In the meantime they look beautiful on our pond.

The same night we lost the buck, something managed to break into our chicken coop and carried off seven chickens. We had been losing the occasional chicken; some during the day we had thought it was a stray dog but now I am leaning towards a fox. Seeing how all that was left were feathers, the chickens were all carried off.
Okay on a more positive note our Narragansett turkey hatched seven poults. She is doing a great job taking care of them leading them around the yard. They are Narragansett/Blue Slate cross. So enjoy the pics
