The Wonders of Nature Never Cease to Amaze!!

Who would have thunk it?!

   After going missing for quite a long time, the prodigal duck has returned.....with (13) ducklings in tow.  AMAZING!!

  I told the family that she had most likely succumbed to the marauding pack of coyotes hitting my farm daily.  There was always the chance that she had a nest somewhere, but it was more likely she had been lunch for some furry predator.  The coyotes have become so brash as to raid the farm in broad daylight.  Lost a teenage bantam at 8:15 this morning.  I startled the coyotes, but not before they could snatch a mouthfull on the way out.

  Anyways, about the time I was tripping through the underbrush, I noticed something tiny out of the corner of my eye.  Low and behold...there were thirteen little tiny things, with a very loud and demanding mother.  Guess she thought it was time to introduce the babes to all of their Aunts, Uncles, and Daddy.  What a sight to behold.

  Now I know that I'm going to spend quite a few hours this evening, rounding them all up....but that's the only way to keep them safe.  A chicken tractor awaits.  I just don't now what I'm going to do with the current tenants.

  Isn't nature amazing?
