    Thought I'd show one with her all bandaged up. First one...not a great job..she was getting fussy. My baby pekins have grown larger than the adult, who I've since named Mother Goose. I have names for some of them but they're getting harder to tell them apart...does anybody know if are there bands that you can place on their legs? Should probably wait til their legs are done growing so bands wouldn't get to tight. I was thinking a little piece of different colored Vetwrap since it's stretchy but I'm not sure how long it would stay on with getting wet all the time. second pic u can see my males thought the fence. I can't get them to go inside tho. Third pic is when I was changing their little pool water. They just love the mud puddle that is under it.

    Thank you! I can't believe how fast they grow. I thought my puppies grew quickly but nothing compared to this! They don't like to be touched but the baby pekins are getting used to it a little. We give them mealworms as treats and they'll eat out of our hands. sometimes they'll let me pet them then. The one was letting me pet her as she was bathing in the pool yesterday. They're so soft I want to cuddle with them. I just posted a couple more pix in a conversation I was having. I'm still learning my way around the site but I know I allowed the convo for anyone to read.
