Collected our first duck egg yesterday!

The Khaki Campbells (Dixie & Dawn) are doing well and are quite happy “co-roaming” with the bantam chickens and rabbits. They love to eat oatmeal and cooked soybeans and spend their days lying in the shade together, gobbling down greens or splashing in the small “pond” we’ve set up for them, all the while quacking contently to themselves. Contrary to popular belief, they are relatively quiet; often quieter than the chickens!

Only when they are hungry, frightened, or hurt do they let out loud quacks. The rest of the time its a deep but soft noise and isn’t constant either — except when they catch sight of you and start ‘asking’ for a treat!

Weather Report: Hot again today. Temps in the high 90’s.
