So I’ve been trying to get some video of them creating mischief but to no avail today. Instead, I decided it was time for them to put on their spring best and model the scarves reader MomSense made for Maddie, Mabel and Penelope.and sent to us.
Nick was not amused, but let’s call it payback for his previous behavior this weekend.
I’m lucky I have limbs left, Nora tried first to bite my hand and then my entire arm. She was not playing.
Nick wasn’t much better….
Enjoy, because you will not see them in scarves anytime soon, LOL
It’s sub-zero out tonight and most of tomorrow, so that meant the ducks had to come inside. The coop is not set up for those kind of rare temps. So, for the second time in five years, ducks have had to spend the night in the bathroom.
This is Nick and Nora’s first winter and I must say, they are not very fond of it. So they seem much too happy to be installed inside at the moment.
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.
