    I keep seeing "share your runner pics" and "Pekin pics" and different threads. Well I have a mixed flock. So here are a few pics from yesterday's bath time. My duckies are 3 weeks old. Feel free to share your pics here. I love seeing everybody's ducks. :)

    Here's Darwin, my only boy, and Darcy. (Rouens). I think Darwin's face is so cute in this pic. I love it when he looks up at me with those big brown eyes and tilts his little head.

    This is Stella, my f/w runner. She's the runt and a little shy, but such a sweet girl.

    This is Quacker, my black runner. My (almost) 6-year-old son picked her out and named her. I had to edit this pic so that she'd be light enough to see her bill and eye. She's so dark, I call her my little black stealth ninja. Lol.

    And this is my little fatty, Puddle the Pekin.

    Very cute! With a mixed flock you get to share your pics on many threads. [​IMG] I will be getting some Pekin next month to breed with my Muscovy so I'll get to share on this and other threads. [​IMG]

    So adorable! With a mix flock do they get along just fine? I was thinking about getting some more ducks in a few months but I can't decided on which ones. I want one of everything!
    And I totally agree about the specific duck threads. There's never a "white mallard thread." What gives? [​IMG]

    My drake, Finn.

    Lol. We'll I figured I'd share them all in one place because I don't have a whole lot of pics of each of them. Most of my pics are all of them together.

    Melissamerry, your ducks are so cute! I saw them on another thread yesterday and when I heard their names I started singing the Adventure Time theme song. Lol. My ducks get along great! They actually start to panic if I take one away where the others can't see it. It's kind of cute. They were all hatch mates so I'm sure that helps. But I don't think you would have a problem with different breeds. I wanted everything too! Lol. That's why I have so many different ones. :)

    You need to start a White mallard thread and see who all comes in and posts pics.

    melissamerry, your duckies are so cute! It's so cool that you take them to the beach. That looks like so much fun.

    I have a mixed flock in the making. These two new girls Sophie and Maddy are a Buff Orpington and Blue Swede, respectively. They'll be joining my Pekin drake and it should make for a diverse little group. I'm making a playlist of the girls on YouTube, too: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8DSKmramdoMQlEKSIo__eBTcQHTkNHe8&feature=edit_ok I've been adding a video a week so that when they're done I can sit back and watch them grow up. I think I'm over compensating after going so many years without any baby birds. [​IMG]
