Saturday in the Yard

lessie
Today Lester and the other ducks and clucks hung out in the yard and ate grass, bugs and treats.

livi
“Is that a bug!?” – Olivia

gus
Gus shared some peas with Lester, and tried to stay out of O’Malley’s way.

He is still having trouble with picking feathers and eating them, but otherwise he is doing well.

les
Gus plucks Lester’s feathers and eats them, so we put Lester in a carrier at night so Gus can’t bother him. So far it seems to work well.

crow
When we hang out in the yard, our crow friend hangs out with us. He is a wild crow, but he likes the ducks and chickens, and he sometimes gets treats, too.

carol
Carol enjoyed some lettuces.

janet
And Janet was on the look out for bugs.

olly
Olly Astro stuck close to me, in case I planned to share treats.

olivia
And Olivia perched near the crow’s water dish in case I left some treats there.

gus
Gus spotted some flying balloon predators and alerted everyone.

scovy
Then he got a little too close to O’Malley and The Ramona Monster and had to high-tail it back to Lester’s area.

nap
Then it was time to settle down for a nap and enjoy a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Petunia was snoozing in the aviary, so we didn’t get any photos of her today. But she’s doing well and she sends her best.

Have a good week, and keep quacking… or clucking… whichever you prefer.

  1. Gus is beautiful. Does he eat feathers because he was malnourished in his previous home?

  2. Sounds like a wonderful lazy Saturday. 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing all those contented feathered faces!

  4. We have had some great weather. gives a chance for the bugs to grow more in the dry grass so the ducks and clucks can eat them. The blue flowers look great in the background of the photos. Glad that all are doing well.

  5. Nice to see everyone doing so well! 😀
