Wanted to start a blog so anyone thinking about getting chickens and have been scared to start because they have heard so many bad rumors will see how fun it really is! I'm here to tell you that after having chickens for six years now that they can be a JOY to have around and they do NOT stink like I was told, if they are properly taken care of. I have also Included a detailed Post on how to make your own cheap brooder for 25 chicks for up to six weeks (pictures included.)

Are ducks digging these holes?
Yes they are! And they dig some pretty deep ones I may add. The deepest one would prob be six inches deep and a good 12 inches wide. They dig all different types of holes (looking for good bugs). What they do is dig a bill full of dirt and run to the pool and swish it around looking for the bugs that float to the top of the water. Smart really! I am learning SO much about them just by sitting out there and watching them.
My ducks love me. They made me this heart.
This is their favorite of all holes...the one that's filled with water lol
