    Today's surprise is pretty Magnolia, whom we knew was setting for a while, emerged today with seven ducklings! Congratulations pretty momma! She is a Muscovy Duck, and some of her babies are Muscovey and some are "Mullards" - Franklin the Cayuga Duck mated her as well.

    Anyway, here she is ....

    with all seven, albeit a bit blurry


    Here's a better one of her but with just six duckling visible - the other was behind the box


    And here she is schooling one of the baby chickens from Easter, now huge, for getting near HER babies! (all seven visible again)!

    Oooh, oooh! July 4th my niece Emily visited - no pictures of her, sorry. But on that day, unbeknownst to us at the time, the first gosling of the year hatched!

    I did not get a close up picture, momma Winnie is very protective, as she should be. But here she is ... Emily the gosling and her momma

    Well aren't they all just the cutest things! I'd be wanting to pick up and cuddle each one, much to all the mamma's dismay, lol. And the goose looks like she is hissing someone / something away in that first photo.

    This is pet talk, of course we want update photos!!!
