    Hello!
    I am from central Pennsylvania. I have made a few topics already, almost forgot to introduce myself [​IMG] We have just received out 3 mallard duckling yesterday. They are 5 days old now. I will include some pictures of them also. I have a name for one. his name is rascal, he likes to try to escape. Also I know you can paint their nails with nail polish to ID them but what about a Little dot on their back? or would that hard their feathers? As promised here are some photos :D

    [​IMG]
    Rascal is the one peeping and eying up the camera. Love these three!

    Ducklings are a lot of fun. I wish I could hatch them out all the time!

    well we originally were going to purchase them from tdc (at that point no idea what breed to get) but my boyfriends co worker duck just had ducklings hatch. he didn't think they were going o because whey she laid the eggs it was bellow 0. but they did and he gave them to us for free.
