Here are my sweeties in their new pool having a ball! I couldn't wait to share.
What are those? Are they hookbills? Oh & they are cute, BTW....
Just make sure you keep a close eye on them...without feathering they can & will drown when they become weighted down with water.
I lost a muscovy (one month old) that way a few summers ago. She got in & couldn't get out of the pool. I now don't let my babies have any access to ponds or pools until they are fully feathered & as an extra precaution, I put in some large rocks & a log so they have something to climb out on if they want to or they become tired. I also keep the water level very high in there.
They look adorable! So CUTE! I just want to pick them up and squeeze them.
Enjoy your babies.
Man, I can't wait to get my duck eggs!! LOL They're adorable! Congrats
Thanks for the comments everyone!
Equibling, we only let them go for about half an hour at a time and with strict supervision (the kids and I sitting in chairs around the pool just in case). I'm a little overprotective. We actually weren't sure what they were when we got them from the feed and seed. I posted pics on here shortly after we got them and the concensus was that our boy Desi is a Pekin and Lucy is a Rouen. Whatever they are, they are cute as the dickens and we are enjoying them. Thanks for the advice!
Yup--I'm overprotective too--especially after I learned the hard way about them drowning! They are cute! Keep us updated with pics when they grow up!
