Breakfast for duckies!

This has got to stop

Michigan government agents seized all the raw dairy from Nourish Co-op (an organic farm located in Michigan). First, it was an Amish Farmer in PA, now, this. We all know the foods that are considered "safe" per the three letter agencies aren't the healthiest for our bodies.
In a nut shell, co-ops and herdshares are private memberships, and this is a massive overreach, as these products aren't being marketed to the general public.
Our opinion is this is bordering dictatorship..
What do you think?

It's probably not as exciting to you but the ducks are in their coop tonight! I've been carrying them to the chicken run and locking them inside a dog crate at night to keep them safe from the coyotes. Every evening we chase and move them, every morning back to their space. So the pressure was on to get this coop working. Not done yet, but it's functional! Even the front door couldn't yet be installed, I had to board it up. I used feed bags to line the roof, as metal will be going on top, and feed bags to line the floor, under the fake grass I added so they'll be comfy and it will be easy to hose off. Tomorrow I've got to get the fencing up very first thing, then the pool needs the drain installed and then I need to make a ramp from the deck to the grass. Rain gas been threatening all afternoon and i panicked to get the stain on, ducks were moved, and then I succumbed as rain chased me in

Technically we meet the definition of certified humane but I don't mind labeling pasture raised.

I think tomorrow we're ready for deck and siding stain. I have metal roofing in the garage, I'll be covering the wood on the current roof with moisture barrier and the floor as well, before we're done

We did a hive check today and the bees were great. They were really chill, eggs and brood in all the hives, tons of honey. We found 2 out of 3 marked queens. Came home from dinner and found this. Started to go see what they were doing and got a warning strike about 30' from the apiary. Any idea?

EDIT:

IT'S A SWARM! On my own hives!?? There were no swarm or queen cells just this morning!

I decided to suit up and go see. There were 2 or 3 virgin queens in it! One got away but I captured 2!

Found raccoon s**t around the temporary duck pen this morning. Moved them inside the chicken run, crated inside a dog kennel for the night, and set a trap in their pen for the raccoon. Can't wait to get them into their own house at night

ETA: Not raccoon, it's coyote!

Do you all remember that female cardinal video? She started with the front 2nd story master bedroom. I thought closing the blind would help. She moved to the 2nd story master bath window, Located on the other side of the house. Then she moved to the front room window (the video I made), and now she's moved to the front south window. She's spent all spring and summer trying to get into the house, which means no mate or nest for her, this is so strange.

I don't know how to help her?

ETA: Just took this video of her through the master bedroom window
