Now That's An Egg!!

As you know, the Muscovy gals have been making their daily trek to the barn.
Each morning I find them on the fence by the driveway...

our special Halloween Duckorations
and from there they make their way up through the pasture to the barn.
They snack on the Runner Ducks' food, visit with whomever is cleaning the dry lot,
hang out by the barn, and then fly back to the pond.


This morning we realized they are also doing something else...


nesting...


in the donkey house!


Check out the size of this egg...


The top egg is a large chicken egg.
The middle is a Runner Duck egg.
The bottom belongs to Ms. Muscovy.
Now that's an egg!

The weather has turned colder...and tonight is to be in the 30's.
I took a few last photos of summer blossoms... soon to be gone.


Dear Friends,
It gives me great joy to share with you, here, the things that make me smile each day.
I try to make this blog easy for you to access...
and so, in the past have written each post in the evening and scheduled it for
publishing in the wee hours of the morning.
Lately we have had some difficulties with publishing on Facebook.
You may have missed us, but we are still here... every Monday through Friday.


If you enjoy visiting the farm, please...
