Here's Roy out feeding and watering the poultry yesterday afternoon. No snow yet, and the temperature was in the mid-20s.
Lots of green grass still in evidence.
Ducks, chickens and geese but no wild Mallards. Roy said they were visiting in full force yesterday morning, but they were no where to be seen in the afternoon.
This is probably the reason the Mallards aren't here. As you can see by this shot of one end of our pond, it's covered with skim ice. I hope we haven't seen the last of the Mallards for the season, but at chore time this morning, they still hadn't shown up.
