( The baby ducklings have completed their transition and are now living with the adult ducks. Their first day out, they were a little wary of the water but with a little push from mom, they entered the pond and discovered a whole new world. They spent over an hour swimming and diving before getting out to take a nap. (Picture above) The adult ducks have taken to the babies considerably well. Of course, there has been some disrupt while the baby ducks learn the pecking order but overall it has been fairly smooth.
Ms. AnnaBell has decided that she wants to try this motherhood deal again and is now sitting on five duck eggs. She originally wanted to sit on her eggs inside the chicken coop but the chickens were not thrilled with this idea at all! Eventually she was coerced into sitting in a private coop that can be locked at night to protect her from predators but also allows her to see out on the pond.
The latest rabbit babies have been weaned and are now ready for adoption. We have received several calls from people looking for bunnies for Easter. At this time, I would like to remind everyone that bunnies are not just cute gifts; they are a living creature that requires time and care for up to 10 years. With that being said, we do allow the return of any rabbits that are purchased from the ranch in the event that you are unable to care for them. (This does not mean that money will be refunded in the even that you return your rabbit.)
