    I recently ordered 1 chocolate, 1 blue, and 2 fawn and white female Indian runner ducklings from Metzer Farms. They arrived today- one day after their hatching date- all healthy, happy, and safe! [​IMG]

    I'm so excited to have ducks again.. and almost forgot how stinkin' adorable ducklings are!!
    It took a lot of experimenting with my camera settings to get anything decent, so these are the best I got for today [​IMG]

    Thinking about naming the chocolate girl "Kiwi".. [​IMG]

    Thinking about "Possum" for this one. She has been the friendliest by far since the second I opened the box at the post office!

    Group shot! Little "Mango" has already learned to tuck her head behind her wing and does it *all* of the time! How precious!!

    I really wanted some of those Metzer runners but I had to go with larger breeds this time around. Your girls are just adorable, though! I love the names.
