    Figured I would share some pics. My pekin ducklings are starting to get a little bigger, and much more vocal. I swear I have all girls. Most peep this very high pitched screaching loud type of peep. I think I have 1 that isn't so high pitched or loud. Maybe just more mellow than the others. They will be 2 weeks tomorrow.

    In the last pic Lucky has like a bigger breast (not sure what its called) but is that normal? Lucky is the smaller of the 4 and has a big like breast area compared to the rest. Should I be worried?

    TOO CUTE!!!

    I would LOVE to have some grand duckies, but I don't think I have the patience to take care of them till they would be big enough to release on our lake.

    Awww, cute!

    I've noticed that wild ducklings get a big fat pad in their front sometimes. Also, I've noticed that it gets bigger right after they eat. I don't know what causes that or if it's normal. Perhaps Lucky is eating more than the others?

    Quote:Thats funny because they were eating right before I took the pics. But it is very noticable whenever i see them. maybe lucky is always eating before i go down there. I will have to pay more attention to see if that is what it is.[​IMG]

    I hope it's nothing serious. I know that's one thing I love about little ducklings is the little fat-ball they get that sticks way out. But, I don't know if that's something that's good or normal. I do notice that many ducklings don't get that at all, especially if they don't get fed a lot.

    Quote:Could I be feeding them too much? I make sure they have food available to them constantly figuring they will eat when they want to.
