    you thought i finished? noooooo...
    i was missing the cute little yellow balls, so, here they are!!! a new batch of ducks when the first ones were one month old
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    they were too many in that cage, no? ok, ok, we move out in no time
    [​IMG]
    no heat lamp for these strong girls
    [​IMG]
    less than a week and the ducks moved out, in the coop, to make room for some more chickens
    [​IMG]
    those needed a heat lamp, they are so tiny

    a few days later the ducks enjoy the outdoor life
    [​IMG]
    just to have an idea how much they grow in one month, look at the difference between the first batch and the second
    [​IMG]
    it was the time for the chickens to come outside too
    [​IMG]
    the younger ducks had to join the flock
    [​IMG]
    drilling for oil [​IMG]

    the big girls, when they were about 2 months old
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    big enough to butcher, no? oooo, yeah...
    [​IMG]
    well, for two months we took care of them, now it is the time they will take care of us
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    those were the first 4 ducks that we butchered, from the first batch. up to the end, everybody went in the freezer camp
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    this is my chest freezer. my daughter has an other one as full as mine. pretty good, for 3 months of hard work. i'm happy with the result. i dont have to buy chickens or ducks for one year.

    Please understand that I mean NO disrespect , and I Totally enjoyed the pics of the baby chicks and ducks along with the cute narratives ,

    However , I did Not really enjoy the Pics at the End of the post , as I feel maybe a " Warning " sentence might have been in good order

    After your initial subject title in the index , or possibly your post could have gone under the " Meat Birds " Thread.

    I'm just a bit concerned that a young child might view the post , ( either with or without an Unsuspecting adult with them ), and when

    Scroll down to last pics , they might get upset.

    You know how children are , they can " Fall in love " with looking at just

    A few pics of cute duckies and chicks.

    Again , please understand that I mean No disrespect.

    I mean NO disrespect either, but agree completely that there should have been some kind of warning. I was so enjoying the photos of the chicks and their progress and the fun they were having, but my heart sank down into my Keds when I saw the first "butcher" pic. I'm 47 years old, not a young child, and it upset me.

    Again, great pics of the babies, and no disrespect intended.​

    Hi jenny_kap
    Those ducks sure look yummy. I have never processed duck, just process extra roosters. Those ducks look so plump.

    For the more sensitive viewers you can edit your title and/or first post to include statement that ducks are dressed for dinner.

    Adorable baby pics.
