    Just wait...aww man...it gets crazy...or check out the growth of a pekin duck...they came home as ducklings on the 6th and they are almost full on ducks now...Lol. They were more than day olds when we brought them home.
    I have 2 mallards that are 4 times their original size and are duck shaped now, so I got 2 more tinies so I could really see the difference. It's huge. The new babies can literally walk under the ones we got on March 7th. They could sit in my hand when I brought them home, and now they are getting huge. These babies sure do grow fast.
