    WOW! I love the white faced. Are they hard to keep? Do you need a permit to keep them?

    Here they are as little peepers the day I got them. It was love at first sight!

    This is Maggie, the crested Magpie duck. I love this pic - it looks like she's talking to me!

    And here's the three amigos this past Monday.

    [​IMG]

    The black cayuga is Zipper, because he moves so fast. He's definitely the leader of the pack. You can't see because his back is turned, but he's got a white chest. That's not desirable in a cayuga, is it? The blue swede is Baby Blue (we were really creative with the names, eh) and of course, there's Maggie. She's the sweetie and most timid of the group. I'm only guessing at the sexes right now. They are all quacking and Zippers sounds more raspy and Maggie's sharper, but I haven't been around enough ducks to know for sure. Whatever they are I love them so much!

    And just for good measure, here's the whole herd:

    [​IMG]

    Well, almost the whole herd. My daughter isn't in there and our other bunny, Shadow, isn't there because she and the other bun don't like each other. The big golden retreiver mix with her tongue hanging out has decided she's a chicken mama. I thought she'd attack them but she baby sits them! Whenever we let them out she stays with them and keeps them in a nice little group. When one gets away we tell her to "put that chicken back" and she herds it back to the group. So funny!

    Quote:They are not difficult to keep, but do require heat during the cold months. This particular pair was purchased with frostbite damage on their webbing, their toes now resemble a grebe or coot, but otherwise swim and move around just fine. No permit is needed, the species is not native to the US. They are gentle around other species, but are somewhat timid and prone to be bullied. Can be very tame towards their keepers and have a very unique call, makes them my favorite of all waterfowl species!!
