Duck… Duck…. Duck….. Duck…. No Geese!!

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures that nestle into the warmth of just tilled topsoil & you hilarious Gnomes who fight over viewing space of “their” new baby ducks,

Miss Lamb your collector of baby animals farmer,

Early Bird Acres has expanded in the last week☺

I would like to introduce to you the newest additions to my little homestead…

…The baby ducks!!

I am starting out with only 15 little ones (& two rogue baby chicks), but after these are a month old, I will be getting another group of 15☺

As some of you might already know, I am trying to achieve an amazing Foie Gras in a natural way, & these little babies are my subjects☺ should be a lovely and interesting adventure…

A balance of natural greens & foods filled with fatty oils a bit later in their lives shall be their destiny…. They will be living in a new A Frame duck tractor next to my lovely hilly pond across from my cottage. Luckily the pond is brimming with new growth and spring rain, so I believe the Ducks will be happier than peaches.

I look forward to the days of traipsing out to the pond and having a lovely picnic with the ducks & Fred the donkey. I do believe that Doris the donkey will be going back up to Oklahoma City & living on my parents farm ‘Lamb’s Lowlines’. I know Fred will miss his girlfriend, but goodbyes are not forever. In addition, in 5 months or so, Doris will be having a baby Donkey. I can only imagine what Fred’s offspring will be like…. For those of you who know Fred, you know what I mean.

I ask of you today to go and appreciate your local birds. Weather it is the sparrows in the trees, the red bird in your elm or your very own chickens or ducks, go say kind words to them. Send them kisses…

I as sure as the day do love you…

Milled grain, fresh yogurt & baby duck feed in the form of torn sweet grass from a child’s hand,

Yours truly,

Miss Samantha Joelle Honey Lamb

Yay duckies! I hope your grand experiment is successful! Ducklings are simply my favorite - I am hoping there will be some (and some goslings) in the pond behind my workplace in the very near future!
