    Ha, lookit all those fuzzy butts! <3

    I love this idea, I'll have to try it for this upcoming hatch! I used a lot of cat toys for my ducklings, that seemed to go over well. Anything crinkly, they were all over! They also seem to love toilet paper rolls. Wobbles used to love squeezing through them like a teeny cat chute. I'll never forget the day he was big enough to stick his head in, but too big to go all the way through so he was running around with it stuck over his head!
