    I took my ducks out for a little walk today when I got home. When we were walking they saw a a little puddle in one of the pot holes in the driveway. They darted, as fast as they could and jumped into the puddle. I didn't realize how little water they need to swim. They seemed to enjoy it a lot. It was great to watch their little feet moving extremely fast, when their bodies were barley moving on the surface. They are all dry now and in the brooder. [​IMG]

    you really need to carry a camera with you at all times you know. (I think thats in the rules somewhere - can't find it now)

    I have nine ducks and they love their kiddie pool. I try to spend at least an hour a day with them they seem terrified of me. Is this normal?
