The quack shack.

We’ve got a new mobile coop at Apricot Lane.  Introducing… The Quack Shack!  Congratulations Dave Schrecengost (my dad!) for the clever name.  The duck house naming competition was fierce.  The winner beat out, “The Quack Pearl”, “The Jolly Quacker” led by Captain Quack Sparrow (of course), “The Quackmobile”, “Moby Duck” and more. In the photo above, can you see one of the ducks taking in the view?   Quacks me up.

Nice work Zack Green for heading up the construction.  Zach also has taken some beautiful photos of the ducks that I wanted to share with you.  If you’d like to see more of his photos from the farm, check out his Instagram page – @zachisthname

In honor of our new duck house and all the little ducklings who are about to head back-to-school.  I have a kid-friendly, nutritious snack for you that is shaped… like a duck!
