There’s nothing like waking up in the morning and having a flock of chickens and ducks at my door.They are so cute and have really adorable personalities.
If you have never owned chickens and ducks or haven’t been around them, you wouldn’t understand.They really are amazing animals.
Every day I wake up I can hear the roosters crowing and soon after these guys are at the door waiting for additional food.My husband wakes up and gives them feed and water,but they know if they come to the door they will get lots of scrap veggies,and fruits,and bread.In fact they go next door to my neighbors door and work their charm and get food there too.Pretty smart huh?
It amazes me watching them how they each have their own personality and they really do cute stuff to make you laugh.
We have one rooster named Chuck he came out of incubator with 4 runner ducks, chuck for the longest time thought he was a duck and the ducks thought they were chickens.Chuck even rides on handle bars of my grand kids bikes,and on their shoulders.Let’s just say Chuck is the grandkids favorite barnyard pet.Aside the ducks to which all have been name ninja ducks rather than turtles.The ducks run around the yard,they are hilarious to watch whether running or swimming they’re just really funny.I enjoy watching them so much.
It is also great having fresh eggs every day,these girls have been so busy and have given us so many eggs.I spent a good while today cleaning and packaging chicken,duck and quail eggs.
Not only that but I made pickled quail eggs,that everyone loves.It is a huge blessing having all these fresh eggs for my family.
So despite the fact that we had cold snow here in Upstate NY,I used my time to wash and sort an abundance of eggs.I think I will make some egg recipes and share them.So my friends if you haven’t had chickens you may consider getting some they really are great!
