I love the blue eyes, too. When they hatch, they are really dark blue, almost navy blue. As the ducks mature, the color gradually lightens to a really pretty pale blue. Several of the darker-colored ducks were also born with dark blue eyes, but as they matured it changed to brown. Most of my current ducks have brownish/golden/reddish eyes.
I love to look out the window and see my flock joyfully dancing in the grass or swimming in their tub. It makes me so happy. Last night it was really sweet when Sweet Pea (the girl in my avatar) sat on my lap and chewed on my finger like a little baby. She twisted and chomped on it so much that it was soon sore. I wish I could have filmed that.
Here's some shots of seven ducklings: (the four smaller ones are a week younger; the mother, Lilac, adopted them because their mother Kiwi died)
After this, I have a video of ducks “drilling” in mud, the complete diving video without parts chopped out, ducks drinking and drinking and drinking (or actually, filtering the water through their mouth), and one more duckling video.
