Okay, you know how I was telling you about how Mr. Rooster and how he stays so close to Mrs. Puddle Duck's nest yesterday? Well, I got a really interesting comment yesterday and I want to share with you what I learned. Angie from Blissfuly Blessed, she is a new blogger (listen to the song on her blog called, Lead Me) I love it! It is about the song writer and who he wants to be for his family. Really good. Pray for our men that they could be that. They really need the prayers of their wives!! Angie also captured an adorable picture and she has a sweet way of taking you right to the spot. This is what she said:
I have a comment about the rooster staying so close. We have a duck that laid her eggs under the stairs. The rooster was staying close also because the chickens were trying to get her nest every time she left. She left one time and he pecked a hole in one of her eggs. I know it was him because he was right there we actually pinned him up for a while the chickens didnt bother her any more. Something got her eggs there was only a few. So she actually moved and started laying eggs some where else. I guess she did not feel safe. Just thought I would share that little bit of information.
After she said that it got me to thinking. . . . . . so I ran out to see what I should do now! Guess WHAT? Miss Americana was sitting on the eggs. I couldn't believe it! She thinks it is her nest I think.
I took her off the nest and put her in a chicken pen with the ducks and little chickens. Then Mr. Phil and I ran around the farm trying to catch Mr. Rooster. . . . . . a sight in its self. So now they both have to stay all penned up until she has her babies. It would be horrible if something happened to the eggs.
I went this morning to the coop to take pictures of the way the "Chicks" patted down the straw to make a nest. Remember yesterday when I told you I would take a pic? Neat of the Lord, how he put it in the hen to make a nice nest. Makes me think, am I making a nice nest in my home? All I can say is I am trying! Any way. . . .
I then went to feed everyone and when I came up to Mrs. Puddle Duck she started to move a little and hiss. I was ready with the camera. . . . . guess what I saw? One of Mrs. (she isn't Miss anymore) Americana's eggs under Mrs. Puddle Duck. Do you see the egg? It is the brown one. I only say one, she may have more. That is a hoot! My farm is a little funny I guess. Little Miss Fluff hatched 2 ducks, so I guess it is Mrs. Puddle Ducks turn to have a baby chick. I love it!!!!!! Farm life is so wonderful!
Look at the little friends we made who live in the field . The little girl in front is going to have a baby. She is a miniature pony. Then there is stud on the right and another pony that is white in the middle. They kept bugging us to get out of the fence on to the side of the pasture we were on.
