Bees and then some
The banties are now in the hen house and I open the pen during the day. They are getting used to coming out and foraging and jumping and sparring. Yesterday John found Mama duck's nest under the water tank. She has a nice nest in a corner with twelve eggs which is hidden behind logs, sticks and an old box. I was looking all over the marsh to the west of us and there she was under the water tank. Eggs should hatch any day. Our friend Lutfiye encouraged us to have new life, well, it abounds. We are awash with fowl. Not sure where they are all going to go.
