Thursday 3 May 2012: Not quite As busy Thursday
I had a work meeting this afternoon, basically sorting out shifts.
So this morning was to be a pottering morning before an earlier lunch and out.
Remembered we had insulin to pick up at the chemist with me working tomorrow & it being a bank holiday weekend we figured I'd best go get it.
WF let all the birds out whilst I went I did the unnecessary.
Grom was still sat on her eggs in her new house so the move hasn't bothered her at all, probably doesn't even know she's been moved tbh they aint the cleverest of birds lol
Biscuit was doing as she should so basically all was well & remained so :o)
The ducklings & Mable are the next birds to be moving house, they are graduating to the BIG pond on Friday night. Jayzee, Daisy & co have yet to be told about the move which see's them leaving the BIG pond behind for a while while they go & stay with DumDum & Muriel. It sounds more complected than it is honest lol
We will get everything done tomorrow night including moving them, putting them straight in their new houses at bedtime so that on Saturday morning they just come out as normal. This helps them to get used to where they are supposed to go at night. Although I suspect with the babies there will be the odd game of chase :o)
So I took a pic of them in their not quite as muddy run, the sun has been kind in helping it dry out but it does now need a rest.
They are now a month old and although the pic doesn't show it very well they are losing their down and feathers are growing well. The young mallard type in particular has a very feathered chest :o)
So that really is that. Proper work starts Monday and I must say I am looking forward to it. Last day of training tomorrow, probably the last time we'll all be together for a while so I'm taking chocolates I figured it was a good excuse :o)
Nearly Weekend folks :oD
