    I've got ducks in my little red wagon!
    The Pekin in the picture is a rescue. Someone threw her out along with 2 others; sadly, the other two were hit by cars[​IMG]
    In this group, 5 have been named: Peanut, Peeps, Sunny, Boss, and QuackerJack[​IMG]

    Awww! So cute! I'm glad you rescued one of the Pekins at least. She'll have a good life!

    People suck sometimes.

    They're adorable!! And good for you for saving that little Pekin! :)

    What breed is the one with the orange-ish head?

    Cool, well he/she is awfully cute! It'll be neat to see what they all look like when they grow up. :) I'm assuming those are the parents of all of them, minus the Pekin?

    I love all their names, btw! Especially QuackerJack. ^-^

    Yes, the Pekin is the only one I didn't hatch. I managed to hatch 7 out of 8 eggs this year, but 2 of them didn't make it past 24 hours. The 8th never pipped, but it was a beautiful solid yellow baby!
