    Well, these are the ducks I have left after the one ate the staple and the hawk killed the other last week. Got around to naming them too... Duke, Duchess, Earl, and Countess. And Quackers, the black swedish, but she came with that name.

    They look so grown up! They're 5 months old now.

    This would have been a great photo if his bill hadn't been missed!

    The boys have really calmed down, they actually come when they're called now.

    It's hard to get good photos, they keep their heads buried in the dirt 9 times out of 10!

    They're from Holderread's TSQ babies, I split the order with someone who let me decide on who got which birds since he only wanted some for a pond and I wanted to breed. Those two boys looked so different from the other boys, bigger, nicer stance, it was weird how different they were as they aged. I picked the ones that looked the best to me. [​IMG]

    Duke is my favorite, I put him as my avatar. [​IMG]
