The duckteens experienced their first blast of winter and were not too pleased about it. They had to stay in their coop (which, to be fair has a decent-sized yard attached) until it was warm enough for their little flat feet.
This is a short-lived cold snap and for most of the winter, they’ll be outside all day. We have very few days too cold for them to trek around the yard.
Nora has been doing something very interesting – she’s been very motherly with her eggs. Every night she creates a nest, gathers the fake egg and adds her own (usually in the early morning). This morning she covered them with a deep layer of wood chips. She’s the first of my many ducks to show this kind of instinct. I’m wondering if come early summer next year she might actually be broody and stay with her eggs. That could be intersting.
