Hey guys!!! Everything is going so great, I couldn’t be happier!!!!

Gil is doing great with the ducklings, they like to follow her like she’s momma duck. She gets a little fed up with being followed around but she’s pretty good at ditching them when she needs a breather.

The ducklings have been living outside day and night. Their pens almost done being built and at night I usually lock them in the garage for now. A couple nights I couldn’t get them out from under the deck because it was raining and they spent the night fine. Predators aren’t as big of a deal since the backyard is kind of surrounded with 4 others backyard and lots of fences. It would be hard for a fox or hawk to get here really. Either way, pen will be done soon and they’ll be locked up at night. It just needs the last bit of hardware cloth secured, the door added and the roof. Then I’m going to stick a small duck house in there to double lock them in at night and give them a shelter. They’re soooooo cute, they just sprint over to everyone in my backyard and hangout. They don’t love to be touch but I can grab them when I need to. They enjoy company and hand feedings a lot though!!


I NEED HELP THOUGH, WHAT ARE THE BREEDS???? Silver appleyard and ... ? The bigger one always looks like something different! I’m not sure if you can tell in the pics, but the bigger one still has a line that is a little lighter than their color going under each of its eyes. That’s makes me question saxony???

Craigslist still works for me, some people don’t like it, understandably. Or the BYC MA state thread under here I am, where are you.
Nice pen! You really need to rethink there not being predators out there. Maybe sit out a game camera. Maybe Buff Orpington and either Silver Appleyard or WH. @ JPat May know about the last one. Beautiful babies. If they decide to hide out under the deck again use a long pole to get them out.

Thanks guys!! There are predators but like they’re down the street st the creek. It’s really hard for them to get into my gma’s yard with the position it’s in so another day or two I’m not too worried. There’s also 3 dogs, 1 of which spends most of the day outside with them. Then another that reallllllly watches the house at night and will alert at anything. The pen is locked down like maximum security so they should be set for a very long time!

^ also meant to add in her yard is between 4 others and there’s no exposed part. The house runs along the whole front, the fence goes along and the fence around the whole yard is predator proofed from before she even moved there. That’s why it’s not stressing my too badly!
