No Oscars allowed!Felix Unger! Too funny IM...just think, if you hatch some eggs you might end up with an Oscar Madison too
Does he also have sinus issues like Felix...maybe that's his problem and he's not really hissing at you...No Oscars allowed!
Hubs said Mr. Rogers but nope, that’s a Felix Unger in duck form lol. He would hiss at me at first when I’d put my hands out to feed them and still gets a little bit crazy over it sometimes. And he hisses a bit when they’re out in the yard and he’s out of his comfort zone. The girls are much more adventurous.
New babies how exciting! I'm looking forward to seeing them. Their pen area looks great! I think I'm going to buy a Brinsea brooder after seeing how well yours worked with your ducklings...hopefully I will get my new chicks in the next couple of weeks!Prepping for newbies today, duck mess and I got my new grow light. There are carrot sprouts in the garden and the squash and Armenian cukes have sprouted in the pots. I’m hoping warmer temps inside and the light will encourage the peppers and tomatoes. Also found solar rope lights at walmart so will put those around the path and ditch the old ones.

I enjoy it quite a bit myself! The grow light wasn’t expensive at all, I got it at Amazon of course. I’m going to use my bonus money from work to expand my operation a little bit. They could really give a huge jump start to the growing season and I don’t have the space for my greenhouse outside even though it’s small. I have quite a bit under just that one light.Sounds like another busy day for you IM! But I kind of envy you the yard work and sprouting vegetables....that stuff is fun to me.
I have always brooded my chicks where my bigs could see them. Right after hatch they would go out to the mini coop so everyone could see but not touch until they were four weeks, then I let them all out. The pop door on the mini coop excluded the bigs from getting in so the chicks had a safe place to retreat to. Since the ducks can’t fly over I figure this should work ok.New babies how exciting!

Sounds like your new plants are coming along...I'll be glad when we can start our plants...we will probably start tomatoes next month and I don't know what else hubs will want to start inside!
