Moving Up

(a story of small families)

The Cayuga duckling hatched all by herself and was a bit lonely

So a kind neighbour donated two Muscovies to keep her company

20200702-20200702-07

and today they had to leave our house for one of their own

20200703-20200703-22

where they got very excited about being able to eat wood shavings

This meant that the hen chicks who had been living there for the last month

20200528-20200528-24

and were getting a bit big for their boots

20200702-20200702-25

had to move outdoors

20200703-20200703-05

for a treat of raspberries

20200703-20200703-01

This meant that Claire with the two chicks she hatched

20200524-20200524-06-2

had to relinquish the area they had enjoyed roaming

20200623-20200623-02

visiting the rabbits

20200623-20200623-08

and rejoin her flock

20200702-20200702-19

(somehow “losing” the male youngster on the way)

where she quickly bagged the best roosting spot
