    It has been SO hot here lately..hot for WA anyway, lol. All 22 of the Muscovy babies have been going into a pen in the yard during the day, everyday lately, and then i have been packing them all back in at bedtime.

    I finally got tired of picking them all up out of the brooder box so i removed the bottom board and they all quickly shuffled out onto the porch. well after a few days of this i was lovin' it! no poopy hands in the morning, yay! they all heard pretty easily into their pen and i close it up for the day. Well tonight I decided to just open their yard pen, put a ramp on the porch for them and TRY herd them back to the brooder on the porch.... Oh! They're so smart & I was so proud! The little babies all quickly waddled across the yard, up the ramp and right into the brooder!!!!

    [​IMG] They're soo smart, cute and adorable! i sat there for a few minutes and watched them laying under the heat light on their clean hay preening themselves and chewing the hay...such sweet little duckies.. [​IMG]

    Good job! It took weeks of bribing with peas to train mine to go into their pen. [​IMG]

    I think I must have the only ducks in the world who don't care much for peas. The only way I can get them to eat them is when I drop them in their water, and they can go "bobbing" for them. I'm beginning to think my ducks can't be bribed. [​IMG]

    How cute that you have them trained! All mine are too obstinate to do what I want them to do. lol
