Dunny door done.

Beyond ecstatic is what I was when I discovered these on gumtree internet site? page?, I don’t know what its called. haha. Anyway I shouldn’t look really as there are always awesome, fun, beautiful, sweet things to be found. The best thing ever, well maybe? is things are usually well within the budget which is even dangerousererer. This is why I don’t have a 70 room chateau on 92000 hectares. Then again…..? no, I am content with what we have there will be more land in the future somewhere(not 92000h)lol . My cotton socks are sufficiently blessed always, really truly.

Hi, everyone it has been a while. I love you all & have missed everyone. I needed to have a little time out, from a lot, which is important to do at times for our over all health. Life over load for me causes my whole body to shut down, I can loose days, time & it gets harder to form a thought, let alone trying to put it into a sentence which is not like me really. I can carry on like a galah at times & often have to ask my friends to slap me off the branch I’m swingin on.

Also like my brain, my old computer seemed to be having the same problems connecting to anything & the new phone I have is decent photo taking challenged, so I apologize in advance for the photos. we are Slowly getting back into the swing of things. From what I have been able to take in everyone seems well, which is just bonza.

So much happening on the farm, which keeps me afloat & my Faith of course. A few of you know I haven’t had much success with Indian runner ducks. The first 3 were stolen, so I purchased 3 more only to have a local dog bust into the yard & take my 2 females, leaving poor Doug all alone.

Being done with all this cruelty, I purchased 2 geese they are fantastic guards & Doug is now an honorary goose or the geese are honorary Ducks I haven’t worked them out yet, which is which, at times they seem a little confused too. Just adorable.

Oh hang on, that’s right, so back to the story. On Gumtree a gentleman bless his cotton socks was selling…. you guessed it Indian runners really cheap. I couldn’t help myself.

Hang on I will be back I’m just gonna feed everyone I’m a little behind today.

Ok so where was I? Oh yeh, well I had 2 days to organise a little enclosure for the new family members. Done.

This was the old set up the chooks spent more time in the shed. The cage kind of became wasted space really.

All I did was move the front cage to the side of the shed, great summer shade & winter protection. An old futon lounge base, covered in wire netting made a great new chook pen door. I am yet to hang the door bell. I don’t want to be rude.

An old dunny seat made for a great henhouse back door which can be hooked open or drop & locked to protect the gang from nasty intruders.

The girls instantly approved.

I am not sure if I have ended up with 1 female & 4 males or 2 females & 3 males? I know you are supposed to be able to tell by their quack or squeak, they all sounded different. I am just too excited to care as they are just the sweetest & as they mature I will sort them out. So far it looks like one female & 4 males, lol.

I am not one to follow trends when naming, I am thinking fruits, you know haven’t people named their children after fruits? like there will be Apple, Cherry, Persimmon, Guava, Mulberry & Banana…. I will decide when I know whom I will keep here forever.

All my ducky’s in a row.

From Frolic & Feed Farm, Thankyou for being you.

  1. So lovely to have you back! and I completely get what you are feeling. There are days when I really struggle with simplest thought activities. Sometimes even reading (which was always a comfort) is challenging. Breaks (as I hope you’ve found) are godsent way to rejuvenate and break the negative cycles!

    I love your creativity – I would never have thought I would see a toilet seat used in this way!

    1. Thankyou my friend, it is very odd to get to that place where we don’t even have the strength for what we love. I usually end up in hospital for a couple of weeks when I get bad, but great thing is this time round I managed at home. yay. I did scrub the old dunny seat before I put it up it works great.


      1. 🤣 🤣 🤣 You scrubbed it before you put it up!!!! You are so funny!

        Sending you lots of positive energy – I am glad you managed to stay at home instead of the hospital – it’s just so not the safest place to be at the moment!

  3. It truly is really great seeing you again!! You were missed, but I do understand that all of us need a break sometimes. I admit to spending less time blogging now, compared to when I didn’t work full time outside of home. In do enjoy blogging and catching up with mum blogging friends very much though. Your new family members are adorable! We are planning on getting chickens again, as soon as we have a place in the country.

    1. Hello my friend, thankyou, it is great to connect again. It takes a while to work a healthy rhythm. lol. I would share my menagerie with you & your fam anytime. Be so cute if you could keep a chicken in your apartment, without poop, lol. I’m sure your daughter would have it covered in glitter & fancy duds in no time. Stay well my friend.
