So, I decided to to get rid of the kiddie pool, and put in one of those prelined ponds, ( had one I wasn't using anymore) for my one and only duck, Pickels. I thought it would give my chicken area a little bit of a nicer look. Anyway, who knew I would have so many assistants! My one hen, Peach, a White Rock, would not get her head out of the way, while I was digging with the shovel. She was so intent on getting those fresh worms with each shovel of dirt, that she dang near got her head whacked a few times! I literally had to shove her away about 4 times! Pickles, my duck, of course had to come check things out, and in her ever so graceful manner, fell in the hole, where the pond was going, and could barely get her chunky butt out. I didn't think to get pics of them messing around the hole, so I didn't get any of Peach, the one that had her head in the wrong places, but here are some pics of the "helpers" once the pond was in. (didn't have all the stones in place yet.) Sorry the pics are a little fuzzy, they were taken with my phone. Here's a pic of my dog, Olyvia with the girls. Normally, the dogs aren't allowed in the chicken yard. However, Olyvia and the neighbors dog "fence fight" and it is just easier to have her in there with me, while I'm in there working. Last time they fought through the fence, Lyv cut her foot on a ceramic pot she had broke in the process, and it took 2 weeks of house confinement before it would heal. It was a very deep cut, but in the wrong spot for stitches. That was real fun. Anyway, she's grown up to be such a wonderful dog. Just thought I would share. Thanks for looking!!
