    We just got two blue swedish ducklings this afternoon. They are about two weeks old. My son, who will be 6 on Thursday, named them Quackers and Spotty. Not what I would have chosen but oh well....

    Thanks! They are sweet but shy. My chicks run to the door of their crate to be let out for lap time. The ducks run to the far corner. [​IMG]

    Yeah. That's the one thing about ducklings. It takes ALOT to tame them.

    Yeah, my Poet was so sweet as a baby and was with me CONSTANTLY. No matter how much I handled her, she is still the most antisocial animal I have. Even the cows are better behaved than her. I really don't care if her personality is...strange. I got her some buds so she wasnt alone and they are all anti-social together! [​IMG]
