    So I built a cheesy little enclosure so the little ducklings could be outside. (its almost 90 degree's out today)

    The kids have a favorite already - one has a tiny brown line or smudge on the top of the head....

    The duckling love them just as much, they BEG to come out and cuddle.

    They're all tuckered out from their day in the sun. each child has a duck on the lap sleeping.

    Quote:Silly things were ALL in the roasting pan before I came along with the camera.

    Its very shallow - like an inch or so deep, I don't want them to drown if I turn away... but they were in and out all afternoon... they had a blast - it was HOT as heck this afternoon and they were loving it!

    They are just the cutest. [​IMG]

    That is so nice you built them their own little pen outside with their own "kiddie pool,", too! [​IMG]

    It's good they are getting used to the roasting pan. [​IMG]


    What will you do with them over the winter? Where does a duck live when the water
    freezes?
