    decided to post some pic's from today - I don't take pictures often enough.

    My Broody - she's only got a few more days to go - she has 4 Guinea eggs.

    We've lost ALOT of apples to wind and hail, I collected up a bunch yesterday and decided to cut them open before feeding to the horse and goat - 50% had nasty brown stuff inside - from a bug of some kind - I only hope that only happened cause they were on the ground already.

    Those ducks sure did grow fast, they're bigger than the bantams already - funny to watch them running! They're super cute and friendly and SMILE all the time [​IMG]

    Oh gosh, those pics were really nice! Those ducks are sweet, and all your other photos just made me feel good seeing them, thanks for showing them. Mmmm apple pie. [​IMG]

    You don't have one of those apple tree mystery things going on, like a certain pear tree might have? [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] Nothing weird going on here - the plums are taking an aweful long time - but thats about it - the apples are lovely - one of the branches in the tree broke at the end of winter sometime, and surprisingly its still heavy with apples on that branch - its hanging by a thin little bit and still managed to produce. We will probably have to cut that branch off or the snow will take care of it this winter.

    Quote:That's too funny. I thought the same thing as soon as I saw the pic of the apples. Hope they don't disappear in the night like my pears.

    Great pics - I love seeing mama hens with their babies. I'm hoping to have that someday. Pretty white duck in the close up pic and I love the blue Araucana with its tufts.
