It's been a week since I added two mallards to my flock of chickens. At first, they were extremely timid and would take cover and hide at the sight of me. After a week, they are warming up to me and their new home. They still won't eat out of my hand like the chickens do, but I understand that gaining their trust takes baby steps. Today, they let me take a few pictures of their pool party. They were splashing, diving, and having a good old time!
