    I've come up with names for a few of my Duckings, this is Ninja. He is very stealthy the way he sneaks up on flys, almost a low crawl!

    This is Turtle, as in snapping turtle. He loves to nibble toes!

    This crazy one looks like he's wearing socks. He's a little clumsy so he's been named Durpy (I maybe spelling it wrong, I have to ask the kids).[​IMG]

    They sure are pretty and have gotten so big, Do they hang out with Lucy and Ricky?

    Lucy isn't very nice to the babies, but tolerates Solo. Time will tell....

    I have noticed my ducks are much less tolerant of the babies than my drakes they pretty much will ignore them but the girls will grab tail feathers every chance they get.

    That's what she does! I'm starting to see a size difference in the babies but trying to compare them can make you dizzy as fast as they move!

    That's true and holding them still is even harder.

    hey Guys... Going to need you to pray for a Miracle for my Myrtle.. she got hurt pretty bad by a car and has eggs under her. So just pray that God will keep Myrtle safe, and her unhatched babies too... It's Soooooooo close to hatching time.. I'd hate to lose her.. I guess mom found her in the road. (i'm at school right now so....) She's one of our best broodies.. and of course our vet clinic wont take poultry/ducks, and I don't know any place in our area that would either.. so whatever happens happens.. That's why I gues I'm asking you guys to help me pray for a miracle.
