    My Neighbor's Hen hatched out 10 babies a week ago, sadly 4 of them vanished (their Muscovy's live on the pond and under the barn) so she asked me tonight if I wanted the 6 remaining babies and of course I said YES!!
    Ran right over there and got them, they're precious! These babies come from the same Hen and Drake that I hatched my missing Scooter from, one of them looks like Scooter did as a baby LOL Here they are.........

    For those that have been waiting for news on Scooter girl, she still hasn't come home :-(

    I do still hope Scooter comes home, but you're right, these darlings will keep me busy LOL I love all of my ducks but I have to say if I could only have one breed it would be the Muscovies, that Scooter had me wrapped around her wing. Their personalities are so different from the other ducks.

    I haven't named them yet, need to watch them for a few days and see what names they make me think of ;-)

    I've got them set up right here beside my laptop and crafting table...what a treat to have them right next to me!
