@Iomine: oooh, nice ducks and pup. I was just up at Jax in Loveland, looking at their new arrivals: silver hamburgs (a number of these looked weak and moribund, compared to the rest which seemed lively and ready to go), buff orpingtons, black and red sex links, speckled Sussex, mottled javas, RIRs, California Whites, and "ameraucanas." There were also a number of dark Rouens and khaki Campbell ducks. I was so tempted.
Gosh, it looks like you got a lot snow.
I share the mud dilemma, has been awhile since I could see out my sliding back door.
I have a little cutie, too. And a big one.
This is my puppy, Abbie, when I brought her home at 3 mos. old. 'Twas the first and last time I ever picked her up.
This is Bubba (Bubbie), my friend's Shitzu who lives here with his family and is as sweet as he looks.
