(Qu)Ack! LOOK at the round, shiny-smooth beak! A perfect pancake in the water. The lil webby trailing behind. And just LOOK at the down! Down softer than milkweed silk. Just LOOK at it!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!
That is what happened to the 'lings on the neighbor's pond....
And it is also why I ended up with ducks. They would take away 1-3 babies so that flock size could increase instead of the lings getting EATEN. SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE IT IS A RUNNNING DUCK! LOOK AT IT. THE WEBBIES SMACKING THE PAVEMENT. YOU CAN ALMOST HEAR IT. THE CUTENESS IS ALMOST PALPABLE. EEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
(Qu)ACK!!!!! The BEAK, it is wide open! A cuter thing have I never seen! A duckiling soft. And fluffy. Tired that duckling is. Is it not adorable???? Than a sleepy duck nothing cuter is.!!!!!!

good morning, everyone! I'm not sure if I've posted here since I changed my user name (used to be J&T Ranch).
Been very busy lately but have been trying to stop in and keep up with you all here when I can :-)
You guys are killing me with the duck pics lol.
Banti- you're not alone!!! I've been wanting Calls myself but my husband isn't on board with it just yet. We have tons of predators roaming around and the ducks would require another Fort Knox coop and run and pool. Lots of work and expense. (Our 3 chicken areas are fully enclosed with double layer fencing, buried welded wire 2' around the perimeter, covered runs and raised coops with locks.)
I've got eggs in the bator again lol. I set 12 of my Marans due to hatch 4/1, and set 9 shipped Lavender & black split lav Bantam Cochins and 5 more of my Marans this week. They should hatch 4/5.
more predators? what gorgeous eggs!!!
