    Little Ducky Babies - a photo timeline

    I had the immense pleasure of raising a pair of Pekin ducklings during this quarantine summer, from the afternoon they hatched onward for 9 weeks. I took about 800 billion photos of them and eventually narrowed them down into a book I had printed for myself when they left me to live on their...

    3 week old Pekins - breathing troubles

    I'm "fostering" a pair of ducklings this summer and may be running into some issues.
