Cat tails

I bought a duck!

Recommended Posts

A plastic one from Ikea that is!

I cut away part of the front and filled it with their dustbath sand! Fancy and dry sandbox. Hope they actually start using it...

Will take a picture tomorrow!

Tiny chickens! Not sure Ginger will fit, but she didn't use the other dustbath much anyway.

Added a link to the duck.

I was really thinking it was going to be a real duck and was feeling pretty jealous :lol:

 

Same! I feel duped!

 

I'd love to get some duckies, but I'm not allowed! :(

Sorry!

 

I almost had a duck a few years ago... went camping next too a pond and got adopted by a little duckling. Almost took him home, but man... are they loud!

 

My plastic duck is still being ignored... hope they will start using it at one point.

Result!

 

Both Leentje and Merel are using my new Duck! Don't think Ginger will, but she didn't use the bucket either and prefers her dustbath in the run. Sand stays dry in the Duck too as we had some rain since.

They pop out as soon as I walk up... the possibility of food trumps a good bath...

At least they are using it :D

Perhaps they could teach mine how to use the present they got for my birthday :lol:

Well Cat tails, your chickens must have sent something through the air to Zoe today, as while I was ironing :lol: , I spotted Zoe in my little plastic house.

I don't know how long she was in there for, but then Polly came and spoilt it all by pecking Zoe from the door, so Zoe came out and Polly carried on digging the wood chip from the outside. Bad Polly.

Their earpiercing loud squawking this morning must have done the job... I'm sure half of village must have heard them! :wall:

I love it :D

 

I've got 2 real ducks. They're massive, they poo a lot, I mean a lot. They dig holes in the dirt and constantly make their bathing and drinking water filthy. I do love them though. They're not very noisy, just when they've run out of food
