Here at Pinedora, our list of animals consist currently of 4 dogs, 1 cat (needing more) 15 laying hens (need more) and 2 ducks that are laying (needing more). Once we get better fencing and a barn built… more animals shall be added. Until then, we certainly enjoy those we have now.
The chickens and ducks are so funny, they come when you call them…. the ducks will quack back at you if you call out to them. Often, they will decide to just follow me wherever I’m walking around the property. I feel like the Pied Piper sometimes.
I’d really like to find a way to train them upon a certain sound to come running when there is danger and we can get them locked up in their coop right away. I’ll have to work on that one.
Here in this video I have a bag of their favorite treats… Mealy Worms! The come running from being on the other side of the dry creek and take a shortcut under the RV. Ahhh, simple fun.
