She Hears Quacking

May
18


The two dozen Araucanas along with the four guineas and six ducklings have outgrown their previous brooder quarters and have been moved to a big brooder in the chicken house. A few more weeks and they’ll be big enough to let out into the chicken yard. Their brooder is near my sweet little duck’s ill-fated nest of chicken eggs.

After all these months since she lost her duck friends, she can hear quacking that is not her own again!


I just hope she doesn’t think it’s coming from her nest eggs…..

I’m writing today on the Farm Bell blog, too!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
