Six new ducks made their way to the farm.
Some decisions take time and others are arrived at quickly.
The choice to raise ducklings came in a split second.
Only after their arrival did I become aware of their benefits.
Turns out ducks are hardier and healthier then chickens. They will manage the changing seasons with little concern.
Our ducks will help control the insect population and they will lay eggs that provide more protein and are better used in baked goods then the speckled eggs our chickens will yield.
Winston, Vid, Ray, Duckie, Dawn and No Name welcome to Avonlea. Thanks, in advance, for your service.
