Okay, last night the ducklings had their very first swim. I really need to figure out how to change the date on my camera. Anyway - here are pics. Please note that my sink was squeaky clean before I put them in - that yucky avocado-colored thing has speckles in it, and it makes it look dirty - blech! Anyway, they LOVED their swim. They turned 8 days old yesterday.
The Black Swedish (Molly) and the Golden 300 (Gabby) dove their heads under immediately - BOTH of the Welsh Harlequin just got splashed on, they never put their heads under. We only let them stay in for 10 minutes, and the water was shallow...kitchen sink...it was THE MOST fun thing to watch that I've seen in MONTHS:
I really like this pic - wish DH had been wearing a shirt that was NOT stained with motor oil or whatever that is! This is Gabby right after her swim:
ETA: Holy cow - watching them dry themselves off was just as fun! Shaking their little fannies, flapping their tiny wings...making happy noises...WAY too cute!
