A Bum Wing

28 Sep

A couple days ago, I noticed one of the ganders has a bum wing.  I don’t think it’s anything too serious; he should be fine.

I’m hoping it’s because Joani actually defended herself when she got attacked.

Joani says horns are for self-defense.

I’m hoping he’ll have learned his lesson.

He’s not quite up to running around with the rest of the flock.

I’m not holding my breath, but I hope he learned his lesson.

Just Some Critters

Here are some of the critters from the last week or so.  Aurora is looking much better now that her fleece is growing out.

I can’t believe my baby Myson turned eight in March.  How is the whole herd getting so old?

My older lady goose is sitting on the nest.  I was a bit worried when she decided to sit with that open wire behind her.  A raccoon could easily grab her.

So I closed the door, and when it scared her, she stepped off the nest.  Luckily there is only about eight or ten eggs in the nest.

Aurora again.  She has been really sweet lately and giving lots of kisses.

My peacock is looking pretty handsome.  I obviously need to clean out their area though.

Seven is such an adorable baby.  He makes me laugh.  He is ornery and funny and hard to catch, but as soon as you pick him up, he’s a snuggler.

Archie is growing and doing well.  He really is striking with the black and white and silvery tan!

Somehow, Popcorn got left in the barnyard again so I walked him down to the herd in the Back Forty.  He’s a good kid, sticking close to his maa.

Stitch and Purl are growing.  I go out several times a day to pet and cuddle Purl.

It’s working!  She’s a sweetie.

Sky still sits on the couch and in the chair like this. He’s finally getting to a point where I can go outside and he doesn’t think he has to come too.  He’s enjoying lounging in the air conditioning.  Wimp.

What a goof.

This is my view every time I walk in where the birds are.

We want tomatoes!

They are demanding garden leftovers.
