adjustments - spring has sprung

This is just a quick update ... We thought we had posted several times since early March but apparently the mobile up-link is not working well.

Spring make our boy duckies MEAN!  We didn't want to have to separate the flock for any length of time, but this spring have been forced to in order to protect them from themselves.  A semi permanent dividing fence has been added to the aviary and a pet gate to divide the inside of the duck house.  (Beau gets to sleep on the girls side for safety.  This seems to be helping matters and now there are a few days when we can keep the dividing gate open all day.  Overall giving separation time seems to be helping.

Our pet duckies an very glad to see spring.  They are LOVING the new spring grasses and we let them out in the big yard to forage as much as possible.  

A few pictures of our feathered loves are below.
