    I brought the 4 little Muscovy babies outside today along with my two baby geese so they could see the great outdoors. They were terrified! With all the roosters crowing, ducks quacking, geese honking, they were so scared. I plan on taking them outside a little bit longer each day to get them used to all the outside sounds.

    Here they are relaxing.

    The big, bad geese checking out the babies. Most of the geese are just juveniles from this year's hatch.

    How sweet..Just the motivation I needed to get mine outside to enjoy the sun today here to...Its been miserable and overcast with lots of rain and snow in the mountians this week- So since its Saturday here- Its a great time to let mine outside for the fist time. My oldest are 5 weeks old already and havent felt the sunlight on their backs yet.
