GUESS WHAT?

Bean had babies!!!

Then one of them had a messed up foot so she didn't like. I had to care for it (which I loved!) and so I had to give it a friend too!

This helps him stay up until he gets used to it and doesn't fall over.

Baby ducks are supposed to be working in the rice paddy weeding, pest patrol and of course fertilizing.  They are not intended to be steril toys in a bathtub.
I am glad you enjoy their cuteness but you have to keep in mind that the nature of permaculture is messy.

Organized chaos, or structured disorder. I would not say messy even though at this stage of our homestead messy is a great word, but Nikki though the cute little ducks pooping in the tub was Not only natural but cute as well.

My muscovies are great mothers without any help and would attack me for messing with their young like that!
