WARNING: Do not get ducks, if you are not prepared to watch their adorable antics, every time you walk by. I'm Serious!
Why Ducks? I love my Chickens, but wanted a second source for eggs, and secretly I just love cute little ducks. They are amazing at putting out the eggs. The French say that baked goods are superior when duck eggs are used. I can't wait to get some of those beautiful eggs!

This make two cast
Iron pans full about 8-9 inch skillets.
Put ¼ cup of butter in each
cast iron pan; place that in a 425 oven until the butter is melted and bubbly

Beat well and stir in slowly flour and sugar. Beat until smooth. Pour the batter

We love to drizzle with lemon juice and berries, or maple
We needed some fencing, and fast. I love wattle fencing (we have always called it wicket fencing). They use this in England, and I have always loved the whimsical romantic look. We have hundreds of small pine trees on our property. A fire went thru a long time ago, and left a little forest of perfect wattle material. My husband and the kids got to work building some wattle fencing for the duck yard.
