It's heck to have to live with pain all the time, Ray. Is there any end to it in sight?
I doubt it Yvonne. I am hoping some of the nerve pain in my arm will subside with time. But I have a feeling phantom pains are here to stay. I have my pain meds, so I do get a break from pain. But pain meds are a slippery slope. I don't want to keep upping the amount I take a day. So I have been at the same dose for quite awhile now.

Good morning!
something has already managed to swipe one of my little ducklings... so I’m getting some Geese! I have located one large African grey male that I’m getting tomorrow to start gaurd duty right away and I’m going to pick up 4 goslings this morning raise.. pretty Soon my pasture will be decorated with large birds!
wishing everyone a great day!

Alpacas are supposed to be brilliant at guard duties... maybe one or two? ;)

Good morning Lyn, hope Lola figures it out. Has there been a weather change going on for a week or so? The winter to spring change had Opo acting strange for awhile.
The weather is improving and although it's still chilly in the mornings and in the shade with temps still only averaging about 11C, it is very sunny here today. No drastic changes though.
Lola is a mystery. 🤔
Apart from when he had his nice long soak he stayed in his hide most of yesterday, until late evening when he perked up and eventually decided to eat.
I've tried putting him out again today in a lovely warm, sunny spot but he had no interest whatsoever. 🤷‍♀️
I know he'll eventually sort himself out but he's missing out on some great uvb rays.

Hope the pain jab helps your knee, Ray.

Sorry to hear you've lost one of your ducklings and hopefully the geese will do a good job of guarding the rest of them and your chickens.
If that doesn't work maybe think about Linda's idea - alpacas are very cute and you could sell the fur too.
Or maybe set Cinders on the perpetrator! ;)

Good afternooning all.

I have been out with a torch peering under our shed. We have at least one hedgehog, probably two, sleeping under there. It seems an uncomfortable place as there are paving slabs there not bare earth. However, they have brought in quite a lot of leaves (and a piece of bubblewrap ☹️).

I am pretty sure one of them is the female that is being romanced at length. I need to move my trail cameras so we get a better idea of what is going on!
I hope you get some good shots of any hoglets they have.
That will be so lovely to see.

Y’all are good for my soul!! Lol... I saw an ad on Craigslist for free llamas... it was all I could do not to get them.. I love the idea of an alpaca or even a donkey but then my Maintenence goes way up with grooming and hoof trimming and feed!!! Lol... big dogs apparently pay no attention and cinder is with me all day.

but I need a small guard that can patrol my yard as well. the culprit here must be a snake or weasel or something of that nature.. It Apparently has no interest in my chicks.. they have been out daily for for a little while now.. either way, the ducks are on lock down and the game camera goes up this afternoon..

Large African gander arrives at 7:30 tomorrow and I’ll put him in then coop until the babies are bigger.... and I’ll bring up 4 goslings behind him...

Gorgeous, but achoo! Nothing like spring to make you sneeze. My hometown was redbud capital of the U.S. or so they claimed. When I could get out of town & stopped sneezing, I believed them!
What really gets to me is all the grass mowing. Sometimes pollen from a tree but that one doesn't. So I enjoy it.🙂

That's to bad.🙁
So the geese will ward off the critters?

Good afternoon everyone, my sister came over today. First time she has been to my house. She fell in love with Opo. 😁
I got thinking when she left. That when I saw her last week when she moved down here from Jacksonville. It was the first time we had been together since 2010.
