    They are 2mo old now & growing into quite the characters. I have 2 drakes and 2 hens. I will have to rehome one of the drakes. [​IMG]
    .... and No I haven't named them yet. [​IMG]

    This boy is a bit bigger than his brother. I like his long lines. He's a bit darker in color & mellower than his brother, less aggressive towards the other drakes but his brother & the others give him preference.

    Not the best color shot here.

    This guy has tons of character. [​IMG] He JUMPS on the pop door when I first open it in the a.m. & runs straight for the cat food dish. He also RUNS with great enthusiasm and JUMPS into fresh water bowls. [​IMG] Lots of vim & vigor in this one! He is a bit more aggressive than his bro though and will poke other Scovies when he wants the water bowl or pool.

    Not quite yet. Their flight feathers are still coming in. The girls will need clipped sooner than the boys.​

    They are beautiful! Don't get rid of the brother, get some more hens [​IMG]

    (I just know how hard it was for me (emotionally) to find new homes for my ducks and geese) [​IMG]
