No, we're not in the market for any puppies at this time and dad wouldn't let any farmyard animals sleep next to his Indian motorcycles in the barn! Now THAT would be a sight! haha
The reason why dad wanted another bird is because our Grey Lag, Grampa died and dad didn't want Dauby to be all alone, especially after the long brutal winter that we had. The two birds kept each other company through many cold nights. We figure Grampa was about 15 years old and we feel so badly that he's gone. He was such a character! We don't want to go into detail so let's just say that we have a hatred for coyotes right now! grrrrrrrrrrr
These girlz are 2 years old. Paul, their original owner, bought 2 swan eggs from Pennsylvania and the rest is history! These girlz have been raised with hoomans their whole lives. They are English Mutes. Dauby is a Polish Mute swan.
They're on their way to meet Dauby for the first time.
Dauby's beak is a brighter orange and her feet are grey instead of black. We understand that the different color feet mean English vs Polish. The girlz beaks will get more orange as they mature.
Mom thought originally that we should name the new swan a name that started with the letter "D" to match Dauby. But dad came home with 2 swans because he and Paul didn't think it would be right to separate the girlz as they've know each other forever and we totally agree with this!
Any ideas on what we should name the girlz? We could sure use your help!
So until next time............
Love ya lots
