    Larry and Sherry are now the proud parents of a couple handfuls of baby mallards that they won't let us see. I'm guessing between 6 & 10 from the egg shells Larry is carting away for Sherry.
    I tried to take some pics but it seemed I was disturbing them so I'll try again tomorrow. Larry is SO protective....every time I went near their house he tried to block the bucket she laid in so I couldn't see.
    Baby ducks sure do peep a lot!
    I just love them!!!

    Today's my birthday...this is the second best gift I could have ever received.....SO HAPPY I COULD BURST!!

    Oh, those are cute! Keep an eye on the escape artists, they are the ones who will get into the most trouble. In the wild, those are the ones you see peeping and running all over the place trying to find their mama before the predators find them.
