They didn't want to play!
And Verde Farm, thank you for hooking me up. I really should save this post for next Friday, but I wanted everyone to know what we did with the ducks. When we put them in their new home you could just tell they were so happy. They started grooming themselves right away.
What is now the duck house is a newer building, and it isn't finished being painted yet. They have a little door that opens downward, which makes it a ramp for the ducks to walk on to go outside when they are big enough. There is a fenced in area with a netting over the top for protection from hawks, coons, and other predators.
While we were there we checked out her other animals. Look at these beautiful cows.
Have you ever? I want to spin their hair into yarn!
And they are friendly. They want to be petted.
So do the goats. As a matter of fact, one goat kept getting a little too friendly with me!
She has milk goats and meat goats. Kathleen raises most, if not all, of the food for her family. And the animals she raises are stress free. They are living the high life. She does not believe in crowding them in cages, and pumping them with hormones or steroids. Her belief is that the animals should be treated like queens and kings while they are living. If they are healthy, then you'll be healthy.
