We have had an extended period of sun for the North Coast in October.
I believe this led to our Banty Mulan deciding to start laying this last week. She was one of the three hatched this spring (the boys have been rehomed to a farm in Naselle).
She is still small herself and she lays tiny little white eggs. The center one is hers.
Isn’t it just so cute!
The gang has been hanging under their favorite shrub.
The duck babies are 4 weeks old now and the mama duck has taken them out and about.
They even visited the apple duckling gang under the prize shrub (a native twin berry bush).
