The Adventure Continues

Our chicks and ducks are now 8 weeks old! Time sure does fly. They are now out of their brooder and living in their coop!
We are having the ducks live in the coop with the chickens, I am hoping that this living situation works out for all involved lol. I don’t even want to start thinking about building another house. HA!

They got so big so fast!

I’ve been feeding them regularly with their chicken feed but I have also been giving them fruit and veggie scraps from the kitchen and garden. Along with mealworms. Their fav!
It will still be about 2-3 months before we start getting eggs, but I’m sure all this hard work will pay off in the end.

The chicken on my shoulder is my favorite. So sweet and so personable. I’m having a hard time determining if its a pullet or a rooster. If it turns out to be roo then I will have to give it up per HOA rules and regulations. I’ll be broken hearted =/

The ducks are doing well, I’m pretty sure they are mallard females. I hope they are girls! I want to try duck eggs, I’ve always been curious.
