You are probably all wondering if the black swan eggs ever hatched and do we have swan babies. The answer is no. The eggs weren't fertile. Dad cracked the eggs open a couple of days ago. It had been 45 days and the eggs should have hatched by now. The only thing inside the shell was a yolk - no babies. Dad was thinking that maybe Hazel wasn't old enough? Agnes did her job. She sat on that nest day in and day out. She would have been the perfect mom.
She's enjoying spring on the pond like everybody else.
This is an incubator and inside are Grey Lag goose eggs. Maybe they're fertile? Maybe not. Time will tell.
Betty the Barnacle goose is sitting on eggs. We're not sure how many and dad has no intention of taking them away from her. Maybe Betty and Barney will be the proud parents of Barnacle babies in June? We'll keep you updated.
Can you see her head in the window? Barney is a great protector. He guards Betty and her nesting box with his life!
The grape hyacinths are in bloom.
And so is the wild Columbine.
We are just loving all of the pretty spring flowers~
