    Looks just like mine. Don't those ducks grow fast. I seperated my ducks, because they were always messing up the brooder.

    Yes, the ducks do grow fast, and they are messy. I have to clean the brooder everyday.

    I need to get a move on and get the coop and run done so I can put them out.[​IMG]

    Quote:I'm really not sure what kind of ducks they are. We are just waiting for them to get their feathers so someone can tell us what they are.

    /quote/ I have to clean the brooder everyday.

    Just once a day? [​IMG] I have to scoop up the wet litter around the waterer a couple of times a day [​IMG] I was warned about the mess, but jeepers! I would have sepererated them, but my other brooder is being occupied with my chicks that I hatched-and it's high time they go outside too, but my other coop is being occupied by bottle calves...[​IMG] [​IMG]

    The ducklings are so precious though, I just fell in love with them!

    They are so cute at this age. Still have some of their fuzzies.[​IMG] The ducks are cute too. I considered getting some this year, but I think I'll wait until I have seperate brooding areas since they are so messy.
