    I have never had baby ducks this friendly before. They run to me when they see me in the brooder and jump into my hand. Then they climb all over my legs and into my lap, and snuggle against me. Today the two of them fought over who could pack into my hand to sleep (kept pushing each other out because they couldn't both fit.) They are only 4-5 days old, but I have never had baby ducks this friendly before! I didn't get them until they were two days old like regular mail-order ducks, but they came from a more local hatchery, so I am wondering if they were handled more than just popping them out of the incubator and into the box. . .
    Anyway, just wanted to share. Maybe I will have the camera at a more opportune moment to snap pictures of them being cue. . .
