    5 runner ducks and 4 cauyugas.

    They seem to have doubled in size, theu are covered in food. And make a huge mess. I urned off the broader light long enough to take a couple picture.

    I tried to post pictures from my phone, I can't seem to gtlet that to work. But yes, they have been to the tub every other day. They love it. It's the only way to get them clean, as they grow I raise the water a little at a time. They can touch the bottom, but can still lift thier legs and paddle along. They are adorable. May order a couple of female geese to stand guard when I need to run some where for a short time, also while they free range as adults and I am in the house.
