    Eva enjoyed herself as much as Mom and the others enjoyed having her. Eva began her life as Evil Knivel (sp motorcycle rider). She was the first to jump out of the brooder box. When I heard the other chicks peeping I knew Eva had jumped out. She was the leader of the pack outside when they first went out. They followed her she was fearless. We were shocked when she laid an egg all of us thought she was a male. Later in life she crowed.

    Yes, that is Dave as my avatar. He does have a very big responsibility now to take care of his family (though he's only just started taking that responsibility seriously..when they first hatched he was a little (lot) to rough with them so he wasn't allowed around them until now when they're about his size and can protect themselves) Opie reminds me of Dave so much..only I got him when he was 6 months old, didn't really rescue him or anything but he's still my baby, was my first duck (i've only had him about a year now) but he'll come and knock on the back door until someone lets him in when it all gets to much and he wants a break.

    I've got lots of pictures of Dave to post, i'll post a few of his Family as well, i've only got older pictures though because Dave wont let me hold him right now, he's molting and I think he looks adorable but he doesn't wanna be held..do new feathers coming in hurt? The pictures of his family will be from the day or the day after they were born (the babies not his wife lol)

    All nine of the ducklings, the neighborhood cats and other animals wanted them so we moved them into a kennel for a while.

    I don't know if it's jealousy but the girls do squabble at times.

    I'm sorry about Re. Pets are wonderful loving beings and it's hard to lose them. I love Dave and Lady. Her all pancaked with that baby kills me. Why are your ducks so cute? How does that happen? I mean, as a burd, they are tops along with zebra finches and hummers. Geese too. At least with gooses and ducks, unlike finches and hummers, at least you can touch them alot if they let you.

    Oh my goodness Dave is a ham, love the pics of him especially the one of him trying to bite the camera. Lady is beautiful and she looks like a very good mother to those babies. I'm sorry about Re we also had a golden retriever. They love everybody and everybody loves them.


    Thanks so much for posting these pics I love looking at everyones birds. If you have more pics of Dave and his family please feel free to post them. The stories and pics make my day. Thank you.
