So before we left for Hawaii I was training the ducks to go in their house at night so I could lock them up. I had a long stick and that helped me wrangle them in. I never hit them or even touched them with the stick it just lengthened my arm and helped them understand where I wanted them to go. I showed Eric how I did it so he could do it when we were gone.
Well we get back home after 5 days and Eric has them trained so they don't need the stick anymore, pretty good eh? Now tonight I did have a bit of trouble with Rhoda, the dang chickens still want to be with the ducks so she kept hopping up on the side of the duck house after they were locked up. I had to take her down and put her in the hen house twice till she stayed.
I ordered some fun Sloggers before we left and they came while we were gone.
Aren't they cute? I have a pair of Sloggers Boots but these will be much cooler in the summer.
The ducks seem to like them. Here they are after they have been hand fed…yes I go in and hand feed them and the chickens their lunch it is fun…there are a bit of squabbles between everyone…I need 8 hands.
Here is sweetie Mary, she was saying "you really wanted a picture of me right?" she is either on my knee or she is on my shoulder. I have started wearing an apron during lunch time feedings because of it…her feet are not always clean if you catch my drift. Oh and she loves the mole on my arm…I am sure she thinks it is food, but ouch, it is not!!!
Too funny when we were gone Eric sent me this picture.
Seems Mary is not particular who she jumps on. I think she is whispering "give me extra please".
Well I have to finish up my DiVa Day stuff for Saturday. I have my downline that earned the day coming for some fun stamping and lunch. I can't wait to see everyone. My downline that earned it but live out of state get their goodies in the mail…minus the lunch.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.
