    Well,

    Momma pigeon is back on some eggs, due pretty soon I believe. I also got pics of the ducks. I had 10 ducklings until about 4 days ago, and then somehow one died. My dad found the body and buried it. I wasnt out there at the time.

    Thanks, Wendy! Those ducks are mixes. Their parents(the father is in the photo) are Pekin X Runner. They are pretty ducks, and the assortments are great because you never know what color you'll get! Good luck with your ducks, they are fun, messy and annoying all at the same time,lol.
