My heart is heavy this morning--a fox visited last night and took 5 of my remaining 8 ducks. He took four newly egg laying females, which adds insult to injury. It's our fault, however, because we forgot to go and put the ducks in their pen last...

We have an unusually collegial batch of chickens. The other night, one of them stood by Ian and pecked at his boots. Ian stooped over and to stroke the chicken, and it just stood there calmly. They stayed that way for a long time. I have been troubled by the...

I bought a 4th goat yesterday. She is related to my Lily, Lyla and Lola, and her name is Lily. Lily 2 for now. Spencer, my rent-a-buck, has completed his job, but I will miss his spunk. He does these flying leaps and twists you wouldn't...

The duck named “Rooster” thinks that he is a chicken. He was raised with two hens and, when we adopted the three friends at the shelter, was quite confused. He takes good care of his hens, making sure they find ponds to bathe in (though they don’t want to...
