I had given Amiga an update but here is one for everyone.... on 7/16 I had my baby a month early. She was very tiny. I had a successful VBAC but hemorrhaged. My doctor was amazing and I was eventually O.K. and became anemic due to blood loss. My baby spent her first month of life in NICU. During that time Mellow healed too. in August after my baby came home and a week after her release from the hospital we had to move. I had to get rid of my entire flock of birds including my two ducks. I gave them to a friend of mine and to this day Mellow is healthy and completely fine. She has had little ducklings and I hear she's been a good Mommy. We moved a few states away and that was such a hard move but it was necessary. We moved to the suburbs and I couldn't have feathered friends because of the HOA. This summer I moved a few hours away and I'm in a rural setting again. It took all these months to get the land ready to handle chicks and ducks again safely. The difference here is that I have three large ponds and the ability to do whatever to the land with a running tractor (yay- hubby has had to work on it quite a bit) so we have been able to build a sturdy two story coop (bottom for ducks and top for chickens) and a movable yard. If I get any pics of Mellow I will post them :) I have 5 ducklings and 6 chicks right now and I'm so excited  to have a flock again. In the future I'd like to have pea fowl perhaps but we will see.... As for my baby.... she is 2 now and very healthy and into everything. She loves living in the country as do all my children. We now only have our youngest four living in the nest :)
