I am glad warmer weather is on it’s way! Willow Manor is showing a little green. I have been outside visiting with my birds!
Keeping waterfowl is a lot of work during the winter. They need water, not only to drink, but to bathe and keep their eyes moist.
If you want rich eggs, you must ensure they have fresh water and quality food. These little friends are primarily pets, adopted from homes that could no longer care for them. For eggs alone, they are totally not cost justified.
They are great company in the backyard and sometimes I think they are happy to see me!
Even if they just like me for the food, I am ok with this as I am easy to please.
I must be. My lawn ornament is a tin can!

I think that post was just ducky!
I put that comment on your bill.
They’re wonderful 😊 I’m sure they’re glad to see you. Have you named them?
Trumpet is the goose. The brown one is Delilah. 3 do not have names. I am open for suggestions!!
Trumpet is a good name for a goose 😊. You could stay with the D theme, Daisy, Daffodil and Dandelion. 🙃
There is an Idea!
Naming is hard work. It’s good to get know the namee 😄
Yes Maam! I get it. My next post is about naming castles!
Looking forward to it 😊
It is about a GPS game. Do you play any?
I don’t think so. I think I know about one where you go to the location and sign the slip of paper and leave it for the next person. 🙃 I think they’re cool though 😎
Those are very fun. Geo Cache
Yes! That’s the one
Are they reasonably friendly? I am a little concerned when they are hungry and charging you for a feed.
They goose is moody and never forgets a mean action, real or percieved. The rest are just ducky!
I get along with them well.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful ducks with us! What personalities!
Ha ha! Thank you! You may enjoy this short drama about them!
I totally understand you, I have around 50 chickens and 7 turkeys, as part of my amusement. Yes, bankrupt describes it well, though I do have an outlet for my eggs, and some of the turkeys go to freezer camp. I am always amazed at the range of personality both chickens and turkeys can have. They are very funny creatures to share space with.
Something bird lovers get to see is the distinct personalities of the birds and the interactions they have with the world surrounding them. Thank you for the comment!
I must say I am thoroughly impressed with your map making skills. I want to be like you when I grow up!
Let the ducks know that I send my regards, and that if I catch them playing Scrabble again with eight tiles on thier rack we will need to have a talk.
I sent my regards. They are quacking and quaking. I was wondering why they kept beating me. It was fowl play. You quacked the case. Thank you.
I wonder if bubbles gets along well with trunpet. Have they ever had a fight?
Also, which breed is bubbles? He looks unique.
Bubbles and Trumpet get along. She is an Australian Shepherd.
That is nice. Do you also have a donkey? Asking because you mention a donkey in your stories along with grumpet the goose
Wilfred the donkey is fictional. I wish I had a donkey!!!
That would qualify your house as a farmhouse.
Ha ha!!! We call what I do Urban Farming!!!
You are lucky to have such a huge garden in this age when most people live in small flats and consider it a luxury.
Do you live in a large city?
Fairly large, but not a metropolitan. Incase you are wondering, plenty of gardens and greenery here.
Beautiful! You should do a post on it!!!
Hmm.. I would prefer not to. I don’t like to blog about myself or my life.
Oh. Got it!!!
I just tried inkarnate. It is a nice software, but sadly doesn’t suit my needs. The stamps are limited. For example, I need to show a pond, a hill, a small settlement, a farm, a forest, a grove and a campfire on an island. It doesn’t have features for most of that.
Well, alrighty then. All 8 of those features are readily accessible to my knowledge. My first map was not even the paid version. Happy hunting!
I just checked, I was looking at the wrong place. Found most of them
Great! It is a start!!!!
I guess I will have to explore the software a bit before I am able to make the maps. There is a lot to learn. Thank you for your help!
Another question, incase I am not irritating you. How did you make that lion logo? I want to make banners for vulpardeo too. I tried using paint, but that looks horrible. I just want to make some symbols with the word Vulpardeo written.
This is what I do as a hobby, Ishaan. You are not an annoyance. You are a friend with similar interests. We help eachother. I am not sure which lion you are talking about. Let me make a resource post so we all have the same info. I want your site to thrive and so does Commander Nicholas! He wants a piece of the action!!!!
The lion in your profile picture
Oh, the Northwich Eagle. I used a android application. Use a logo maker on your phone to make banners. Any one will do. You have to purchase heraldry banners most of the time so logo makers are a great route!
Thanks for the help, dear friend!
Oh sorry, I guess it is an eagle
Ha ha! Perhaps I should work on my logo!!!😜😜😜
Haha! No it is amazing! I guess I should go back to reading kindergarten books on aninals
I love the photos! God bless!
Thank you! You as well!!!
