Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Just some cute little ducks...

Just some cute little ducks... doin' cute little duck things.


These are my little milking buddies. They love it when I fill up the drainage ditch to make a little puddle for them. This momma ducks loves to brood and raise her babies in the garage - right near where the goat milking happens. She knows that if she comes over to me peeping and stomping her little ducky feet that I'll give her some sips out of the milking pail.

I can't help it - I just love little ducks.


Another scorcher today but the humidity has come on us so its worse than before. I need to keep these little guys cool so they will be playing in the water again.

Any body else got little quackers splashing around in puddles today?

Happy Monday everyone! Keep cool and think adorable little ducky thoughts!

Ducks are wonderful on the farm ! Ours will eat tons of flies and slugs which is an added bonus ! I too, love to watch them expell all of that energy while I sit idle and watch ! ;-)

I used to have 2 ducks, til my dog became a problem. They were SO cute! Had a little kiddie pool and duck house for at night and predators. I'll get some more someday...

I love my ducks. Lost one drake to a mink the other day. Wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. Damn, mink. I think I need a new coat. LOL That is a good reason to make a mink coat. It stole my food!!!
