    Went to the feed store to check out their chicks today and saw the cutest bright yellow ducklings! 4 bucks apiece, but they were soooo cute...., had to contain my composure, turn around(after a few minute of gawking!), and walk out empty handed. Just not sure how deep I would've got myself into having a bunch of eggs due to hatch May 9th. One species at a time, one step at a time!

    Oh BTW, I have chicken eggs due.... (but 5 healthy yellow ducklings for $20 bucks, minus the 4 week wait, egg questionabilities, and no incubator costs was SOOOOO tempting!)

    I'm already day-dreaming about them! I hope it doesn't continue throughout the night once I'm asleep. Love them duckies!

    Quote:You mean "he" wants them......! Yup, I'm one of those guys who loves hew-born anythings.... I've bred cocker-spaniels a few times also. I just love the miracle of birth and the responsibility of caring for them when young. I'll never lose the excitement that comes with it(seeing the births and being surprised with the colors, sizes, and such, regardless of species!), no matter how many times I watch! Come egg-wiggling time, I won't be able to sleep until hatched. Well, maybe with my head on the bator a little!
