    We have been hit for the last 4 days with rain, mostly all day everyday! Well my ducks are just in ducky heaven! They usually have 2 medium size ponds that should be connected by a small river, but its been dryed out because of the past 10 years of droughts. Well now its flooded and they just going wiping from on pond to the next! I wish the stream would always stay its very pretty, but I am sure it will pass once the rain stops.... but they sure are loving it now!

    Well somebody needs to tell my muscovy babies that. They're only interested in the occasional bath and dipping their faces in to find stuff to eat. And they HATE the hose. And yes, we need pics.

    Quote:Oh mine don't like the hose either, they run if I turn it on even the goose. but they love anything with water in it. I have even seen my girls bathing in a 2 gallon bucket, my duckling has just now started getting in the small kiddie pool by it's self. before i had to put it in. but if anywater is sitting in a puddle on the ground oh my gosh mudville in no time.

    my ducks LOVE the hose! They'll stand right in front of the stream letting it hit them in the chest or bite at it from the side

    Quote:Im right along with you. My ducks LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Everytime I turn on the hose they are either at the fence when they are locked up, or at my feet. They will stand up nice and tall and just wait for the water to come streaming out. Lol! My Rouen drake will even spread his wings out and just stand there. Picture ( if you have ever seen it) a vulture with its wings spread out in the morning soaking up the warm sun. Ya he looks exactly like that. [​IMG] He is so cute! My muscovies dont like it as much, though on the hot days I will spray them to cool them down. But my baby muscovies love it. They have little races through it. They will all stand on one side and then race through to the other side then turn around and do it again and again. [​IMG] I could watch them all day long doing that.
