Dolly & Rufus

No that is not lipstick on my duck! Dolly absolutely LOVES tomatoes, and if you watch the video below you can even hear her slurping up tomato juice.

We’ve come to the conclusion that Dolly is VERY happy to have us as her family and is pretty pleased with where she is, verses the mud lot she was in before.

Dolly lays one egg a day, she hasn’t missed one since she started laying, which I absolutely love– although I’d be happy if she took a break too. She is very interested in us, and usually will bring Rufus and the whole clan of hens with her to wherever we are on the property.

Bethany About Bethany

I am a prisoner of the highway, farmer and lover of Mother Nature, the moon and stars, my long and low, flat-top Peterbilt, chickens, cats, dogs, horses, cooking, photography, tattoos, tea pots and vintage barnifacts…among other things. I’m also a very, happily married, third-generation truck driver. My career choice is both demanding and rewarding, just like most things in life that are truly good.


  1. That is a Duck Heaven I’ve never seen before. Lucky ducks, they look so happy!

  2. Aw, they both are so cute and seem so happy. I’m glad she has adopted all of you.

  3. Bethany, I just LOVE Rufus an Dolly!! They are just too cute for words!! Watched the video yesterday after you first posted it, an got the giggles watching it!!

    Rufus and Dolly are precious and the cuteness factor is over the top! When I am stressed, I am going to be sure to watch this video again. It’s very relaxing just to watch them amble around and eat your tomatoes!
