    Here's some dinner time videos! (only about 30 seconds each)

    If you look close, Ming Ming is the little drake with the spot on his chest that I took in that was so malnourished and very underdeveloped, not to mention filthy, when he came to me.
    He's the one I posted about in the "hole in chest" thread for those that saw that thread.
    He's doing really well and eating like a champ! He has put on some weight and the "hole" on his chest is much better but you can still see it in these videos. I hope as he continues to gain weight and goes through a molt, you won't notice it anymore.
    The "hole" kind of feels like a soft spot on the top of a baby's head and I worry his chest bone did not develop properly, but he seems to be doing really great now!


    Pay no attention to my redneck voice or my super fly yoga capris and crocks!!
    I was ROCKING the "I work from home" look!!

    My flock is: Taz, Tweety, Largo, Montego, Ming Ming, and in the 3rd video, my big Drake Jmatt makes an appearance to eat!
    Soon as dinner is over, Jmatt heads back to the geese!
    He thinks he's a goose and flocks with the Canada Geese that pass through! LOL







    And some still shots my husband took:

    You can clearly see Ming Ming's "hole" here.

    Thanks for the clips!

    And your voice sounds like family to me (raised in Georgia).

    LOL!!!
    I'm pretty country fried!
    I'm just to the west of Atlanta now but grew up in the deep south of Albany, Ga.
    Where were you raised?

    Cool!!!

    Any one have any more thoughts on the hole in Ming Ming's chest?
    I'm always looking for suggestions about this.

    They are adorable! I love how they will eat out of your hand.. guess i haven't tamed my ducks good enough [​IMG] Mine will come around if i start tossing scratch and if i have to i can pick them all up but they are not eat out of your hand types..

    Those pekin are such cuties! i can see why they are popular! I also now understand what my husband meant by real duck noises he dislikes how the 'scovies don't sound like ducks lol[​IMG]
