The babies I hatched last year.
It does break my heart to sell the ducks but I have put some thought into the decision. They definitely don't lay as well as the chickens. I really can't see myself eating them, though we have ate ducks we raised before, it is just not how I thought of these ducks. But the main reason is that there is a lot of repair work that Phil has to do to make the place livable to us and it isn't fair to ask him to build a chicken pen (they are going with us) AND a duck pen. Plus the ducks need more room and he probably could only build them a small pen at first which really isn't fair to them.
We have a lot to do with about a month to do it in, and I don't want to get too overloaded too fast.
There are other things that can't be taken like the hazelnut bushes. They are absolutely huge and we would never get them out and moved. I may, however, take some small pieces to plant. The Chinese chestnut will stay mainly because it grows so incredibly slowly that I will probably be dead before it produces. The fig trees are too huge to move but I will get some cuttings. Fig trees are real cheap here anyway. The peach tree that I planted a few years ago did not get pruned like it should have last year and is huge this year. It will stay. Still thinking about the pomegranate tree.
Some things WILL go though. The roses will go, the blueberries will go and I think I can get him to bring some of the raised beds as well or I will get them myself. Lots of the flowers and flowering bushes will go.
I seriously, can't wait until Wednesday!. I believe I will be able to sleep again after that... :)
