The wild mallard is probably the best meat I've ever had. If you fry it up quick and nice, you can't tell it apart from beef when you have a piece on your fork until you taste it. Those things can be super cute too, I shot one this fall, but once again, didn't get the best possible hit and when Vaiva came back with it, she was holding it super carefully and it was just looking up in her mouth, wondering what was happening. By the time she got it to me it had passed away though.
Those blue layers sound interesting. I like colorful eggs, it's so pretty when you get all the colours. Not sure if I shared this one here yet, but this is now our current spectrum:
Pretty pale, but clearly powder blue in the right light.
We had some excitement yesterday, I locked up the chickens and let the dogs in the yard, and started wondering when the dogs got all weird. Turns out one of the bunnies (Inkeri) had escaped the cage and Älize almost got a hold of her. She bit down hard, and I got my hands in between at the same moment as she chomped on her tail. Spent a couple minutes prying my fingers between her jaws to get her to release her grip, but the bunny didn't seem to have any injuries. I'll be surprised if she gives birth in a couple weeks now though.
Kits are doing good, about to go out and check on them soon.
Sam, is it twins? Cool. Know the sexes yet?
Al, so one of your kids is a junkyard baby? =P
We went and saw The Force Awakens yesterday, I can warmly recommend it if you liked the first three at all.
