A few pics from the garden

Been outside for most of the day, cleaning out rabbit cages and feeding the birds, a bit of a mammoth task! This is a blue eared pheasant, they are from China, ours is so tame he will come to the fence to be fussed!
And our Reeves, these have really long tails, sometimes up to 4 ft, they are supposed to be kept in round pens to prevent damage to the tail when they are exhibited.
As usual Gypsy found somewhere to dig and get dirty, I think she has shovels not paws!
Some of our Muscovy ducklings with Mum and Bob the guinea fowl with his girlfriend, all going for a stroll around the garden.
These two are Peking bantams, they are brothers and look a bit festive by the holly
Meet Frank, the lavender aracuna. The females lay blue eggs.And these our speckled sussex, we had quite a few hatch this year and now have about a dozen of these.
Plus of course, my favourites, the toulouse dewlap geese. As you can see it was a nice day today, thankfully no rain or frost.
And this how successful the fence is around the house, it should stop all the birds from getting on the lawn but it seems most end up inside, they have about four acres to roam around but insist on sitting by the doorstep!
