    I tried to upload a couple pictures below. This is a pond next to the creek. We are very lucky we have natural springs and a year-round creek. The ducks prefer the muddy little pond though so far. It is secluded underneath a bunch of trees so we didn't even know it was there until recently. The ducks are around 7 months old (6 cayuga, 2 buff, and 1 khaki campbell). The smallest cayuga though is a recent hatchling (we hatched one of our own eggs). He/she is already nearly the size of the others though! We also have 2 guineas that were raised with the ducks, so they really think they are ducks. They're always hanging out with the ducks, even in major storms when the ducks are out puddle-splashing and the guineas look so pitiful and drenched being in the puddles w/ the ducks.
