The other night as we were finishing up at the farm, JR asked if I wanted to go shopping and get a few things. Nothing exciting — just a few odds and ends for the farm and house.
I was almost done so I said “sure,” but I just had this off feeling, like he had more up his sleeve than he was telling me.
As we were strolling through the aisles I finally realized why we were there.
Baby chicks and ducklings can indeed be found at many farm supply stores during spring, and he wanted to scope out the selection.
He raised ducks as a kid and told me last fall he wanted ducks now that we have the outdoor space. Luckily he was reasonable and agreed to wait until spring.
There’s still snow on the ground, but he’s already plotting. 😉
He said the store trip was important so I could see how nice and cute the ducks were. Not that I’m against the little fuzzy birds, but I’m campaigning for about 10 instead of who knows how many…
We haven’t brought any home yet, but I have a feeling it won’t be long. I hope the dogs don’t scare them too much (or vice versa)!
We shall see. In the meantime, Brit @ Duke’s House, I think I may need some advice. 🙂
