Who couldn't use a bit of green this time of year? I know I enjoy it even with my deep love for winter. Winter is my sprouting time of year. They are so tasty and nutritious! A little fresh chlorophyll never hurts! I sprout alfalfa & mung beans for us and oats for the ducks!
A little GREEN interlude ~~~ Then the story!
New Ducks this year so they are unaccustomed to sprouts. Ducks are naturally cautious creatures. Anything new makes them skittish, even a delicious platter of oat sprouts!
First I put them by the door...the ducks all ran inside their house...
Then a bit closer...they all skirted around the intruder and went outside...
I put them in the food dish and left for a bit.
When I came back they hadn't touched them!
Finally! after putting them in the water bucket and leaving again did they eat them up!
I am on my 3rd batch of sprouts and they only eat them if I put them in the water.
I won't complain though... 8 ducks & 9 eggs this morning!
Someone is doing double duty!
Speaking of GREEN...here are a couple of Eco-Friendly Items from one of my Etsy Shops!
LOVE to all my readers!
I have been sporadic lately... I hope to get back in the groove soon!
