Summer has arrived and so has the hot humid weather.
We put a dish in one of the duck house nest boxes to give them water over night and still limit the big splashy mess they usually make with water.
I think Queenie had a very strong opinion about this though. I am not sure yet if she thinks it needs to go or maybe she thinks it was only for her, since it was in a nest box) and was standing guard over it. In any case she cracked us up this morning.
We also added a small tarp for extra shade. They are of course a little afraid of it (it is new - a change). We are still working (slowly) on other shade improvements and vegetation improvements. The duck aviary will be a constant work in progress.
