    Meet my three Mallard ducklings. We just got them yesterday, they are 5 days old and I swear they almost doubled in size over night ! okay, maybe not doubled...but they def grew over night ! took me 24 hours to get their heat to the correct temp now it goes from 90-94 which is alot better than 109...poor babies :( but at least now that's taken care of, now how am I going to lower it 5 more degrees in a few days?! LOL well anyway I am a first time duck owner and cant get enough of my three so wanted to show them off :))

    FINALLY got the temp where it's supposed to be at. Only took 24 hours..poor babies were roasting and huddled in corner all that time. here they finally get to enjoy taking turns swimming in their water dish lol
