Each year, I grab my camera, get into the kyak, and chase the wild ducks around Bacon Lake Pond for a while.
I don't want to damage my camera with a spill, and I don't like chasing off the chicken ducks that leave the pond. But I do like the attempt at in flight close up photography.

Well we have ordered and received 26 new baby chicks, some fryers, some layers.
We opened the box up Monday the 8th with the help of Kenzie's third grade class.
Now they all reside under a heatlamp in an unused bathtub.
On the eve of their arrival, a raccoon killed one of our newest layers, and then last night, returned and got two more of the birds by reaching into the coup, and grabbing them. It appears that the rooster too was grabbed in this manner. I do believe that the chickens run to the rescue of each other.
I have spent the day repairing the coup, and nervously awaiting Kenzie's arrival home from school, and my telling her of the bad news regarding the coup, and the loss of two birds, one being her favorite!
The cirlce of farm life! We have two eggs in an incubator now, from her favorite bird Wendy, and I found some other eggs in the coup, and placed these fertile ones under the heat lamp as well.. We need to continue on with our poultry...!
