A Week in Farm Photos March 17th - March 23rd

This week was another rollercoaster of days in the 70s, night into the 30s and then we were surprised with a mini snowstorm yesterday!  When will spring get here for good!

  1. Pretty photos! After seeing how much your chickens like the stumps in their run, we put a few in ours. I think the cat likes them more than the chickens though, haha.

  4. Hey Lisa,

    I was wondering if perhaps you could give me a little information on raising ducks in the same pasture/coop as chickens. We recently purchased two ducks as well as more chicks for our flock. We are excited. However, I was wondering if you have had any issues with the duck pond and chickens drowning. Does your rooster cause problems with ducks? Will the rooster try to mate with ducks? Our existing flock has one rooster and 8 hens. The new batch of chicks/ducklings will have 22 chicks and 2 ducks. Other than making sure the new ones are carefully introduced after the brooder, should I be concerned with anything else. Please feel free to send me a personal email.

    1. Hi there. Sure you can raise them in the same run. We have kiddie pools for our ducks and the chickens have never drowned. The rooster doesnt' bother our ducks at all. And our drakes don't mess with the chickens either. The two groups get along but sort of do their own thing. Since there will be only two ducks, I would just lock them up in the coop at night with the chickens. They will sleep on the floor in the straw or shavings without a problem.

  7. Beautiful eggs! Looks exactly like the mix we get from our neighbor who has chickens. There is NOTHING like a fresh egg, right? ;) So jealous of your gorgeous blossoms too.
