We've had a couple of peeps ask us how Twozie is doing. Twozie is doing great! She is still just as friendly as ever and doesn't mind being touched but don't try to pick her up. She doesn't like that at all and speaks her mind very loudly about it!
Yup, that's Twozie and remember the 5 ducklings that dad and mom brought home from the livestock auction so that Twozie would have playmates? Two of them are in this picture with Twozie.
Remember that three of them had hats? Who could have guessed that a male duckie could be a hatter too ☺ It's very hard to tell Twozie's bestest buddies from the wild mallards. The hats give them away plus they all stick together. Mom must have cut off duckie #5.
We just love those hats!
These are Speckles' ducklings. They've been out of the swan pen for quite awhile now and they're doing great!
The whitish duckie is Midgie. She's not a midget any longer. She's a good sized duck. All of Speckles' ducklings are good sized ducks and they're all happy and healthy.
Dad finally got the swan house roofed with shingles. Inside the fenced in area, you can see Buster and Hazel. They were getting amorous with each other and because the Black Swans are from Australia and it's spring in Australia, they could be getting ready to mate. Hazel has the start of a very weak nest going right in front of the double doors. They have their privacy and we're keeping an eye on the situation.
Angel and Alice, the Whooper swans are getting along just fine. The Black swan behind them is Bella.
And here is Bella again eating one of MY apples!

Penny and Margaret, the Mutes were trying to take an afternoon siesta. FatAss and Twozie had other ideas for them!
This is right outside our back door. The Morning Glories that took forever to get going are finally blooming away. So far, we haven't had any frost to kill the vine!
