    The little one that wouldn't stand up is doing well.
    The vitamin/electrolyte supplement helped.
    They got to go outside for a little while this afternoon.
    My boys enjoyed feeding them peas!

    Awh, so cute! Glad to see that they are all doing well. Your right, the one is bigger than the others. Sorry, I don't know if he is a drake or not. Our drake is already bigger than the ducks that are a week older than him, but I don't know if that means anything. Listen to your ducklings quack. If it is a drake you will hear the difference in their quacks.

    Thanks for posting a picture.

    We got them three weeks ago today! So probably close to 4 weeks old. This is our first duck experience and we are loving it! Already wanting more!
    Now time to decide on how secure area we are going to provide. We have a 100' foot pond and want them to have access to it.
