    Yes - I know. I'm addicted to the camera! These are my new calls that came in yesterday - two whites and a butterscotch. They are about a month old and they came from Dennis at Wapsipinicon Waterfowl. He's a great guy. And of course I had to throw in some pictures of everyone else - the 2 1/2 week old giant dewlap and a nice one of the Buff's feathering out. I am so relieved that their beaks are turning orange - that pink was really disturbing.

    And I cannot post without the gratuitous donkey pic. Paris wearing her neon pink halter. They had farrier lessons this morning but they both failed miserably, so the halters never came off. [​IMG] What can you do....they are donkeys. [​IMG]

    I love seeing them too, so I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    (I should correct my earlier post - that is a snowy call and not a butterscotch...still just as beautiful though!)​

    Love the ducks!

    I just got my first 2 ducks a couple weeks ago and they are so fun. I gotta say I'm jealous of the donkey too... I've been wanting to get a couple.

    Quote:Oh gosh those donkeys make me laugh everyday. Normally I keep them behind a fence and away from the house because they come and knock on my window at night if I don't, but this morning I opened the gate and they ran circles around the house, down the retaining wall stairs, under the deck - they are very sure footed. All the dogs just sat in the middle of the yard and stared at them. [​IMG]

    I got mine from the Longhopes Donkey Shelter here in CO, that is a GREAT place with a SUPER lady who runs it.

    Funny you named your donkey Paris. [​IMG]

    We thought about naming our cows Paris and Nicole. DH thought the cows might be mad, tho.

    Cheers,
