We have given up on trying to contain Mama Muff, aka Emma, and her brood. Those chicks are the Flying Wallendas of the poultry world!
They have taken to sleeping in a nest box at night, the whole family...
Growing like weeds, aren''t they?
They run around outside in the fenced yard with the ducks and chickens, who are all being good with the chicks. Once in a while they'll get a peck from a hen, but nothing serious. And can they run! And fly! They are all wild and crazy like their Mama.
Meanwhile back in duckland...
Eugenia and her daughter Maria Andretti are still sharing a nest. I need to deal with that before eggs hatch.
This weekend was a long one here, as we celebrated Canada Day on July 1st (yesterday was a statutory holiday.) On Sunday we drove south of Montreal to visit our godson Ben and his Maman and Papa!
here is Marie-Emmanuelle with the world's happiest baby!
They have a new cat named Minou. He came from the SPCA and is just wonderful. Loves the dogs, the baby, people... what a great kitty. They adopted a black cat because there are so many at the shelter. People (stupidly) don't want to adopt black kitties!
Ben was trying out a strawberry, as you can see.
Here's Papa Patrick and proud godfather Gordon. Gordon is more than a little smitten with Ben.
As am I!
He is almost six months old. You can tell he is very loved and he knows it. Such a content little guy!
This little guy is content too!
We love this little guy. :)
Stay tuned for more ducklings...
