    Today my two Pekins found a small puddle in the yard and were digging like I've never seen. Then they started stomping their feet repeatedly. It was hilarious! What the heck were they doing? I got a so-so video if anyone wants...

    No idea on the stomping? Man I wish I knew what they were doing.

    They were playing and sounds like they were really enjoying it.

    I've caught my ducklings doing that and about busted a gut laughing at the cutness!!!! I call it happy feet

    They've only done it in puddles, or wet wet ground. I am not sure but I think they are trying to squish the water around to help moisten the area they are poking their bills into.

    Cute as heck when they do it!!!!!
