    What in the heck is this? Why are we all puffed out and round and semi-pancaking on the green hose? Io is a mingler. She is a very social little girl. What is with the cute and very round one closest to the building?

    Why are they all so cute? Is it because they are ducks?

    You are so funny. Thank you for the entertainment. You're right about jail. It is a horrid place. As we all steal Magpies we better not get caught.

    A mallard, lol... she's I think a mallard/rouen mix... I have 2 of them... friend asked me to hatch some of his eggs, half were infertile and half were already started development... only got 2 to hatch and he decided to give them to me... lucky they both turned out to be girls... they're really easy going so do well with the Calls, but we don't hatch their eggs and they're the only ducks we have that aren't Calls, lol...

    Think they'll pass your QC? :D ;)



    It was sooooo cute, Julie! The silver started talking to her and calling her over... I think she sees Io as like herself, I dunno... but she chattered at her til Io came over and they just kept nibbling at each others bills so gently... so glad you liked the pics... :)
