    I've been going to sales looking for some new ducklings for my pond. Finally I found some. They weren't marked so I am hoping they are blue swedish or a cross of them, but I'm not 100% sure. They had just hatched goslings, they were so cute. I wanted to get some but they also weren't marked so I have no idea what kind they were, but so cute. I may go next week to see if I can get a couple. While I have a messy brooder I might as well get all the water fowl I want. [​IMG]

    How cute! Ducks grow up so fast! Hard to believe mine were little fluff balls just a few weeks ago. Although it sure was nice to get them outside and out of the brooder. Thanks for the pics! ( And you're right: how much worse can a couple of goslings be when you're already up after messy ducks! [​IMG])

    Adorable!

    They do grow so quickly. I was looking at my pekins today- big white ducks and was remembering how little they were only a month ago!

    Enjoy them while they are young [​IMG]

    I got more ducklings last night at Lebanon Valley. I didn't plan to get any, but no one was buying ducklings. They were all like 30 cents per duckling. So I got 5 black east indie ducklings. I'll have to get a picture sometime today. [​IMG]
