Hello. Lovely babies. Glad they got to you safely. What hatchery did you order them from?
Thank you! We got them from Johnsons waterfowl and I am very pleased with them!
Adorable! I wish I could steal that Saxony Drake from you - what a charmer! But no more ducks and definitely no more drakes <sigh>.
I wish you could too. It is going to be so hard to see him go. So far nobody is interested in either of the boys. I'm sure it is because they are boys. His personality is wonderful too so it is extra hard to part with him.
I was so worried that Cricket would not make it through last night. At bed time she still seemed kind of frumpy and off. But she did and she has been great today! Phew.
Right now the Saxony babies are the most outgoing and the Silver appleyards are very skittish. The magpie babies are starting to warm up and in fact I think Cricket is working on being my buddy. She is the only one who actually runs up to me (but the Saxony babies are more outgoing overall). No matter, we will get them all calmed down.
Photos for the day! I will get new shots of the runners tomorrow, they slept through picture time tonight.
Gypsy the sassy silver appleyard
Asher the silver appleyard drake
The irresistibly chunky Saxony drake
Sweet little Magpie Drake
Nova the Saxony female
Cricket the survivor (magpie female)
Wobbles, wish you could come & take some pics of my babies!!
I wish I could too, then I could soak in all of their cuteness!
I'm a bit torn at the moment. We planned to keep Asher because he is just so cute. But I keep thinking the Saxony boy is just so much more sweet. I'll have to see what Shane thinks...maybe he can make the final decision. One thing, whatever boy stays gets the name Asher.
Well, they're 'lings so they're all cute. Go for sweet personality.
That is what I will probably do. Maybe I will wait a few days and decide once they have really settled in.
Just one picture tonight. My camera died on me!
They are all starting to come out of their shells but the Silver appleyards are still sassy little things!
