The smartness of ducks
We currently have almost 100 birds sleeping in the stable each night and with over half of them being ducks, that makes for a lot of poo!! This afternoon therefore, we gave the whole area a bit of a spring clean: removing all the spent straw and having a good scrape of the concrete before spreading a fresh bale of straw over the nice clean floor. It was all highly satisfying and should make mucking out in the mornings much easier too.
It always amazes us how much ducks poo and what a mess they make inside and out, and yet the animals themselves always look completely clean and smart - as these tow youngsters are demonstrating so well!!
