Pool and animals.

I have  been missing for a bit, visiting my son and daughter in law in QLD not the right time to go can't swim in the pool a bit cold still  but the ducks do, these shots are a bit misty but if you look closely you can see them.



They don't stay long just a fly in  quick swim and off they go.
This is the new member to the family his name is matey, he says Hello a lot and What's the matter mate

He also coughs a lot and dances maybe he was owned by a old smoker who likes to dance, he is a rescue bird that wondered into a house one day out of the blue. 



The first day I was there we went to the farm or produce store just down the road to get supplies for the animals they now have 4 chooks too along with the goat so they are now a little farm.
I think they sould get pigs too but they are not so keen.




The rooster was all puffed out and strutting around.
 
Maybe these were his babies and he was very proud.

  1. I think they should get pigs too. Such intelligent animals.
    The rescue corella looks very, very happy.
    Nice to see you again - you have been missed.

  3. It does seem like a mini farm. You theory about the corella might be true. Pigs sound like a great idea. Winter roast pork and get some bacon and ham made from them ;-)

    1. I can't see them eating any of their animals the chooks lay eggs and no one likes the taste of goat meat so they are safe but bacon and pork is lovely.

  4. Matey seems like a cheerful character. pigs might be a good idea but not everyone wants them and they already have a goat and chickens for eating scraps etc. Do they grow their own veg and fruit too?
