Hi Bob, you can still get those tiny baby sized inflateable pools online, they're about 2ft. Might that work for your ducks? probably one at a time !https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/402368132351?m ... =28&chn=ps

Hi all ,well guilty of being absent without a good excuse .
Lots happening since I lost Box .
I have had my Blue ring nr.4 in a box , in my front room for about 3 weeks roughly.
She is blind at least near sighted one . Head is held back on her back , struggles to walk about.
I think it is a bad dose of what Penelope had .
I feed her all sorts of food , treats and corn and pellets.
She sits on my leg and chatters as best she can and enjoys eating and drinking .
She is as happy enough .I cut a slot in the box so she can peer out , as I caught her standing stretched up head over the box.
I thought she may have died weeks ago but she is so strong and willing to carry on I will keep on feeding her .
The rabbit ,cats and dog for company , tele and me .
18 hens and 2 ducks doing well in the run , eggs have dropped down to 6 at most which is expected this time of year .
My house is now being ripped apart . Down to a kettle and a microwave .
Not much I can say about work but have done 2 weeks of nights shifts and having to work as well which is very unreasonable I think .
plenty of what , you want me to do that , and sling your hook from me .
Covid is rife and people in hospital and 1 death that I am a where of (work and a retiree at Xmas (4 days ago.) )
Still working and have plenty of shouting about it all.
I can only say STAY SAFE and well .
Keep out of harms way and if you can stay at home where ever you are DO IT .
Write again when I get the chance .
Sandy trust you are well and look forward to the day we can meet and hug .
Do not mind the rest of you ladies I am big enough round the tum for all .
Good to hear from you Bob - I was wondering what had happened to you as I miss your posts. You still sound busy enough at work, whether that is a good thing or not, I don't know. glad you and your animals are OK. Stay safe and well yourself.
Hi all a up date on blue ring nr4 . She was fed this morning with lots of bits etc and watered .
I put her on the floor with a small tray of food in a pile near to the dog water bowl (large tin one )
She managed to get a claw on the tray and after pecking in the air , to the side in front and behind , looking at it sideways head back and forward , she managed to peck and eat quite a lot of food , the mess she made in doing it was worth it .
Swept up and put back on tray so no harm done .
She is making lots of noise in the box when I put her away and after a bit of a panic flutter settles down on the floor .
The builder in the house said she sounds better , so I think she is well but never going to be with the flock on her own.
I will keep feeding her and water with tylan in it .
Half a dozen eggs with plenty needing them.
Work interesting times .
asked to work 16 hour night shift , first time in 44 years I told them to swivel on it .
Work life balance is out the window as also requested to do night shifts next week again , 3 week this year .
Getting shift change on the week . (Rate x shift x 1.5 x pay .)
Happy with that as no extra hours .
Kitchen rooms built with a lowered ceiling as Iron girder`s in ceiling is no good for the wiring. Plumbers and kitchen hopefully next week .
micro and kettle and the works kitchen .
Weekend may be a pot noddle / pasta for Sunday diner ....
Well I still have a sense of humor .
Keep well and safe .
