Salad Bar

Disco's dozen at 17 days old are growing fast. 

They have the life of Riley, and so well looked after by Disco who is always on the lookout for dangers. She has seen off Herring Gulls and Crows, and witnessed the Sparrowhawk catching a blackbird outside the aviary. 

They are fed several times a day, and am now weaning them onto Grass as well as Lettuce, a good source of Niacin and saves me cutting it so often !

The smaller rescued Ducklings are still in the warmth of the coop, but will introduce them to the outside Aviary soon with the warmer weather forecast.
Short video of Disco's babes below, even in the pool she is on the alert.
