    I'm good! I forgot to tell you guys. A couple days ago while I was eating dinner, we saw something fly over our house and land on our lawn. To our surprise it was a female and a male duck! They had to have been wild, but they where so cute! I got some pictures of them and ill see if I can post them. They stayed for about 20 mins. and then flew off.

    How cool is that?!?!?! Speaking of Mallards, our drake and his two girls didn't come home till after dark last night. [​IMG] I was so mad at them for staying out so late and making me traipse around with a flashlight, but yet I was grateful that they were safe.


    Same here! Non-chicken people don't know how it is to have to wear a bad pair of shoes around the property and never wear the good pair until it's time to go out in public. [​IMG]

    They are going to be soooooo handsome! I can't wait to see pictures of your babies when you have enough time to get new ones of them. [​IMG]

    So cute! They look just like our Marsh, Celine, and Sapphira. [​IMG]Your yard is so perfectly manicured! [​IMG]
    Good to know we're not the only ones. [​IMG]

    Any idea why my Faverolles, Ginger and Ashley, don't have salmon chests? Does yours have one?

    Well I think they are mallards, we where having guests and that's what they said they where.
    Oh that bush with the yellow flowers used to get torn up by our dogs they loved to sit in the middle of it. It's looking good now, but who knows what our big dog might do to them this summer. :rolleyes:

    Actually I think I do. I was reading and some Salmon Favorelle pullets will get like white and black polka dotted chests and beards when their young if they where hatchery bred. When they get older that coloring will all go away and they will have creaming chests and beards with salmon pinkish backs. :) Mine has the same issue. I'm kinda hoping she won't loose so much because I'd like to be able to tell her and my other Salmon Favorelle apart. ;)

    Yep, they're Mallards! [​IMG]

    Dogs and flowers don't mix, do they? But then again, neither do chickens and flowers. [​IMG]

    Ginger and Ashley have white chests with no color at all.....weird!

    You don't really have to have a water source to have ducks, I mean, we don't. [​IMG] But you're right, they can tend to be messier than chickens.

    Wow, that's good news! Poor Ashley gets picked on really badly; she doesn't even have a tail, but a bare stump. [​IMG]
