Birds Enjoying the Weather

27 Dec

The birds have really been enjoying the warm weather.

The peacocks have been out until dark nearly every evening this week.  You can notice the tail is starting to grow.

My chickens have been out quite a bit too.

The hen behind Nugget is my free-range chicken.  She was actually out free-ranging this week.

The geese have been liking it the most though.  Even though I still have one naughty gander. (The other is all threat and no bite.)

With the record warm temperatures on Christmas Day with the long dry stretch, I finally managed to get them a clean pool.

Not that it stayed clean very long.

It looks like they’ll get to keep the pool going for a little while yet.

Our weather has taken a turn towards ridiculous hot again.  After two days of finding one of the goslings in the water bucket and unable to get out.  I decided it was time to give them the big kiddie pool back.

The one little gosling was in it right away.

The big gosling soon followed.

Eventually, all three goslings did make it in, but that was later in the day.

Everyone could get in and out.

The thing that surprised me is that Widow Goose just stood there and kept an eye on the youngings and didn’t get in herself.

She is such a good mom!

I do hope she gets to get in and get wild in the water soon.  It’s been a while since she’s gotten to do that.

I felt bad after taking the pool out of the birds’ pen, but I really don’t want a gosling to drown.  I did the best that I could for them.

It didn’t take long for the little ones to try it out.

They are growing!  It won’t be long before I can put a big pool back in here.

Poor Widow Goose just wants a real bath in her big pool.

“Does this food pan make my butt look big?”

She’s going to have to make do for a little while longer.
