    Okay, I could stand it no longer...the ducklings had their first warm water bath. They enjoyed a little dip in a bowl in the sink and had soooo much fun. I just wanted to share these pictures with everyone.....

    After the bath they were each towel dryed, given a kiss, and back in the brooder box to warm under their light. Then came the Clorox- lol. Ducklings are sooo fun!

    How'd you decide to get these breeds? (other than their addictively cute faces? [​IMG] )

    Ducklings are adorable, but they are messy!!! I decided to put my pekins in the tub for their first bath, and I'm glad I did!! They were splashing water everywhere!!

    I just took first bath pics of my rouen and cayuga ducklings yesterday, but I haven't uploaded them yet. When I do, I'll surely post them!!

    I love ducklings so much, if there were a stronger market for ducks here I would hatch nothing but!! [​IMG]

    One question, what is the temperament of your cayuga babies? Mine are the most spastic of all the babies I have!! Whenever I pick them up they freak out so badly that they 'spit up'. [​IMG]

    Very cute! I love raising ducks, but sadly we have no place to put them.
    Thanks for sharing!
