    [​IMG]The babies came Friday-
    Sadly the chicks that I ordered did not make it in shipping, but the DUCKIES did, and they are too cute! i have been so busy, I couldn't get a chance to post pics till now.

    Thanks to everyone's educational posts and info provided!! I think I have a pretty good handle on how to properly take care of them!!
    oh, Cayuga's BTW....Otto and Dana are their names. Otto, the male is the one with the little yellow spot on his head..... I did order 2 more females, and they will be called Daphne and Delilah, when they arrive...(I guess I need to call the feed store to find out).
    Hope you enjoy the pics!!

    This little stretchy thing they do is too cute!!
    They are so funny!!
    I love the way they zoom around the brooder when they get excited!![​IMG]
    and their little wings[​IMG]
    and feet with the tiny claws on each toe[​IMG]
    and their little sideways upward glances[​IMG]
    If I could get away with it i would watch them all day long[​IMG]

    ETA: Oh, and the sound they make when drinking water
