    DD took our 2 ducklings outside yesterday to play in the grass and sunshine. I couldn't resist getting a few pics.

    The kids have named the crested Black Swedish, Poof, but the yellow one has no name yet. I hatched the crested one in my bator 2 weeks ago, along with 2 others. I got the bright idea to sell the other 2 ducklings, big mistake, Poof hollered day and night. So I had to run down to TSC and hope they had ducklings in. Luckily they had just gotten some in that morning, so now Poof has a friend. Two of the ducks I hatched had dark black feet and bills, and one had spotted, I assumed that meant Poof was a girl, but she seemed bigger than the other two, with a longer bill. Now I am starting to wonder which she is. She was the first to hatch and the only crested one, we couldn't part with her.

    Thanks [​IMG] I still want to steal a couple of your new ones though lol

    Its good I know how messy they end up being, or I would probably have 20 ducklings!! I do have 27 duck eggs in the bator due to hatch next week, so I might get my wish lol.
