    They have also discovered the ducks deep love of all things muddy

    Watching their first nose dive into a muddy puddle is always funny. My husband came in later and was worried they were all dirty. LOL!! A muddy wet duck is a happy duck. They were clean, dry, and warm inside their duck house by dark.

    My ducks looked like that last week. I think mine are 3 weeks I could be wrong.......4 weeks tomorrow might be possible. This is what they look like now. They grow incredibly fast!
