Well summer is almost upon us, and the heat and humidity are right up there. Atleast we got alittle bit of much needed rain. The gardens were screaming for it. The hummingbirds are finally showing up, not as much as previous years, but I am happy just to hear them buzzing around.
Sadly I lost one of my peking duckies, just made a year old too. They went to the creek for a swim and a snapper got him. Took almost all the skin and feathers off one leg, by the time I managed to catch him later that day, it was already getting nasty. But I gave it my best, flushed the wound, and put peroxide on it. He seemed alright so I put them into a stall, to better keep an eye on him. But sadly the next morning he was hiding behind some posts and the smell was terrible. So instead of making him suffer a slow death we put him done. So now the other Peep has he is named wanders around, but hasn't made friends with Gertie and Whitie yet. I figure by winter when they are put inside together they will bond. Safety in numbers and all that. For now he is content and follows me and comes when I call him to eat, loves dry cat food.
