We had to put Limpy down. There was a congenital birth defect in both legs, so even our splinting efforts were meaningless. Now we have four ducks remaining, and they are in robust good health. We moved them out to a real pen this weekend, including a small swimming container, and they are incredibly happy to have drinking water plus swimming water.
The girls have a bigger 5 gallon waterer, but it sprung a leak and we’ll have to fix it or get another this week.
The potatoes are ready for hilling up soon. So that’s also pretty cool. And in other news, some neighbors graced us with a playset their kids had outgrown. Our eldest is in toddler heaven.
And it’s blurry, but salmonberries are already ripening. Delicious!
