New Kids on the Flock

Whew!  What a busy weekend!

After spending all day Saturday in Seattle, where Cookie medaled in 6 of her 7 dances at the local feis, we decided Sunday was a good day to make another few addition to the family.

I Will Hug Him and Squeeze Him...
and comb my hair next time Cookie takes a picture of me with the ducks

 We adopted 2 Silkies (mainly show birds, but we are planning for future enrollment
in 4-H come Fall),

2 Polish, &

4 Barred Rock hens.

Ever since we moved in, Moose has been dreaming of ducks in our pond.

Once we saw these guys, we completely forgot all our rules for responsible animal keeping and adopted 3 of them.  (Then promptly rushed home to place Storey's Duck Keeping book on hold at the library!) :)

We chose one of each of the "assorted ducklings".

They are now hanging out with our chicks in the brooder.
Cookie made up a great name for them...whenever she gets a hankerin' to visit them, she announces that she'll be "out with the Chucks".

Looking forward to seeing how this little experiment works out in the coming weeks!
