Saxony/Appleyard X Ducklings
Just look how big these ducklings have got! They are filling their brooder now and need more space so Nigel is working on the shed we have in a separate pen which was Buck's cabin (Buck was the billy goat we used to have). He will hopefully finish the cabin today and then we will go and get some chicken wire to put round the pen's fencing (mutton fencing - they can fit through the gaps) and then they can move out there. We will also be able to bring the other two ducklings up as well, dont know how they will be accepted by this gang so we will have to keep an eye on them to start with. If they wont accept them we will have to rethink what to do with them. Will post a picture when the cabin is finished.
