We have three runner ducks who live happily alongside our many chickens here at Pringle Creek Community. The hen (& duck) house and run is located adjacent to our renovated glasshouses and community gardens. Local gardening kids named the ducks this spring soon after they arrived. Their names are Ash, Graham, and Marble.
Residents and CSA members benefit from the fresh, organic eggs the chickens and ducks provide. The gardens benefit, too, since the Lay-dees love to eat garden waste and their waste is GREAT for our compost!
Colleen, our Urban Farmer and all around gardening guru, tends to the chickens and ducks on top of taking care of all things produce. She took some great pictures last Friday after she changed the duck’s pool water. I just HAD to share!
