Following on from Duty of Care, still thinking about our relationship with the animals around us.
It is easy when they are totally dependent on us
the pigs would not like to see themselves as dependent – but they are
the hens could possibly fend for themselves if pushed
and the ducks get most of their nourishment from the land
although here they were enjoying a (disused) rabbit hole filled with water by us
Here we reallocated resources by making available no longer needed hen feathers
to the bird population. Although the blackbird makes everything hard for itself
Or maybe just makes it seem that way as it makes its nest from mud – of which we do have plenty.
We have been recycling culled hens
although we don’t really want to entice foxes any closer. So we were pleased and excited to see a raven landing to take advantage
Here he is in action
Which brings us to squirrels
Today we went down the path of trying to protect the bird food
But if we make it harder for them will they just raid more nests? Should we just shoot them? After all they are immigrants…
