    My Pekin girl loves her pool, but yesterday she was just stretched out floating in it, going in lazy circles. I thought it was cute. The Muscovy had no idea what she was up to.

    The pictures don't do it justice. She's not swimming - just floating. Is this common Pekin behavior? She is 3 months right now. (And when she was done floating, she splashed with joy. She's a fun duck.)

    I wondered!!! I said that to my husband! Today she was being all adorable with the Muscovy, cuddling close to him. Lol. They are quite the odd couple. Thanks for the info!

    Oh, he's been chasing her around the yard. Love is in the air. That first surge of teenage hormones. [​IMG]
