Duck in the bath

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The recent heavy rain has meant we are dealing, yet again, with lots of mud. While most of the time this is not a problem for the ducks, occasionally they get so overwhelmed that they are unable to clean themselves. And when that happens, they probably won’t survive. So recently we found one of our ducks covered in mud. We brought her back to the house and put her in the bath where we showered her (ducks love that!) and washed off the mud. A meal of wheat followed before we returned her to the livestock plot.

We are planning to move some of the ducks to our main field where we will set up a duck run. They will therefore be on grass and the aim is to let them eat it to clear plots for planting with vegetables. Once they have cleared a plot, we will move the run (which is made from the frame of a polytunnel) to another site and we start the whole process again.

Until 2009 I was working in London, UK, but I gave it up to pursue a life of self-sufficiency. My aim is to grow or forage for all my food, produce my own power and live a healthier and greener lifestyle. I left London to return to my home village of Sunniside, near Newcastle, in the North East of England. I have a couple of plots of land there as well as the garden of my house. Our village is a commuter area for Newcastle but we are surrounded by countryside which we use for picking wild foods. My mission in life is to show that it is possible to live well without destroying the planet in the process. I am also keen to ensure knowledge of historic recipes and cooking is kept alive. I regularly try out recipes from old cookbooks using the food we have grown. I make videos about our progress and about how to cook home-grown foods.
