Flappy Feet, Flappy Feet, We've got Happy Flappy Feet.....
OK, so I won't give up my day job. But, it's catchy, don't you think? It's Spring on the farm, and hatching is in full swing. I've got flappy footed ducklings everywhere. I swear, God made them so adorable to offset the fact that they are so messy :)
I'm pretty much letting nature take it's course with the ducks....But for those of you who have an interest in The Fancy, I've got blue, black and splash, standard and bantam Orpington eggs in the bator. I've got a baker's dozen standard Orp chicks on the ground, and I've a sizeable hatch expected in five days. These are not yard birds, but from the best show quality lines in the US...mine included.
Sadly, I won't be offering Orp chicks this year, but I will be offering a limited quantity of my version of a California White. Awesome layers. That comes from the fact that they are a Leghorn Hybrid. Contact me at the farm if you have any questions.
The Farmer's markets are firing up, and I'm getting orders everywhere for stuff that isn't even in the ground yet. Frost expected tonight, so I'm still holding off planting. Lost a lot of my fruit bearing bushes and trees this winter, including two of my five grape vines....it will take a while to recover, so be patient.
Remember, if you have a taste for something specific, and it's not showing up in my store....e-mail me. I'm somewhat forgetful at times, but I always remember to check the puter. Besides, I'll cook to order......just about anything....but ducks ! :)
