My three runners are getting big. They spend every night out in their coop outside (I just couldn't take the smell, and I live in Florida where it's been hot hot hot lately) and today they got their first taste of the "big kid pool." Previously they had been swimming in a little bucket where they could touch, but today I went out and got an inflatable from Wal Mart for twenty bucks. August was more concerned about the peas he was sure I was storing inside the camera than really swimming at first. But eventually they had tons of fun. I love it when they dive. The littlest (the duck who hatched five days late) is a big diver. It's his favorite thing ever. My favorite thing ever is when they cock their heads and look at me like I've said something absolutely ridiculous.
