    So the friend I was going to get a new Blue Drake from decided to keep theirs after they lost their old guy not long ago. I have this young boy that is actually turning out to be quite stunning. I think he is a Kepper, whatta ya think? I think he might be developing a white head, which kind of sucks.

    I think his name will be Slade or Sloan...

    He's pretty friendly, that whole group is a bunch of puppies, lol. i can pick them all up and they usually don't fuss at all. he's a bit inquisitive when i am down messing with the geese, he tends to hang closer to them for some reason too.

    I like the name Keeper!


    I think he is adorable.

    Is that speckled chest Chocolate going to be a drake? I like him also - just gabbed my eye. [​IMG] (in the picture where Sloan/Slade has his back to the camera)

    The chocolate one is a hen, she's about a week and a half older than him..her name is "Fudgie" [​IMG] She's about the reddest chocolate i have ever had, really super pretty!

    SO far my leftover boys are black pieds/blacks and 1 Silver boy that is getting quite HUGE lately [​IMG]

    Nothing's wrong with it, i just hope he keeps some dark on it like Sidney, it just looks so pretty with the bright red caruncles..maybe he'll just have a "funky patch"? lol

    i see, yes it would make a difference with the caruncles.
    (i nearly called them carbuncles)
    the duck that caught my eye was the one with the white bib.
    and red brown on the rest?
    i really love all of them.
    especially since you said they are like puppies, and will let you pick them up.

    i wish i could come and visit your place,
    see all your wonderful friends,
    and play with them!

    i am too old for this!
    or maybe they will keep me young!
