Thanks largely to all the wise advice and information gleaned from BYC, I am now the proud mama of six little female ducklings! They arrived just this morning from Meyer Hatchery - two each of Welsh Harlequins, Cayugas, and Buffs.

After everybody was placed in their new brooder and had a drink and some food and a bit of a swim-splash (I read that newly arrived ducklings who have access to water they can swim in wont have problems with pasty butt) and then another drink and more swim-splashing, and then more swim-splashing, I gently toweled them off (and gave them their first solo photo shoots) and put in them in their shipping box which will be their "bedroom."

Splashing is hard work!

Same!
I've had ducks for almost 7 months and I had to get more :bow :celebrate


It's so nice to know I'm not the only one! I would have got another goose too, but I don't know if mine is a boy or a girl and it's way too late in the season for goslings. Plus It took all Spring to get the duck house and pen finished, my husband is NOT going to go back to work on expanding it already.
