Another Mama?

One of the Giants has gone broody. I wasn't sure until I reached in for the eggs under her and she gave my hand quite a harsh peck. So, she has moved into 'the nursery' with a clutch of 6 eggs. Not sure if any are actually fertilized, but at least this way she's not taking up nest space in the hen house....

Wildlife Update

Yesterday, I saw:

2 'wild' (meaning not ours) ducks, a male and female (Mallord?)

1 roadrunner, in the pasture

3 snakes on SB, all crossing from the field to our road.
