My beloved one-eyed Pekin Quackers who sadly crossed the rainbow bridge with the help of the nasty raccoon I sent away.

She stole my heart and started this whole duck thing.

Well after my disaster with raccoon part 2 I was left w/ 1 rather wild Rouen. I had a giant hole left in my heart in Quacker’s place. So I got two Cayuga’s & a Golden Layer.

After 3 or 4 weeks I could tell the Rouen (Maggie) was quite lonely and after a walk to the creek with the ducklings I noticed she was excited to see the ducklings. I introduced them and she seemed over the moon and excited again when in the pool. The little ones immediately took to her and followed her well, like a duck lol

I’m still on the fence with names for the Cayuga’s. I like Goldie for the G. Layer, nothing seems to work for the Cayuga’s just yet.

Well then these little booger’s came home.
A Saxony, Blue Swedish (drake), & Welsh Harquins

Sadly I lost one little gal to a broken leg. She was so damn quick and got away from me during a brooder change & fell down several steps.
They grow daily and sometimes I wish they would never get bigger but that’s part of the joy, seeing them become grownup and move into their own I suppose.

Sooooooo cute. I just want to come over and snuggle them!

All duck people are welcome here!

Update: I think I’ve named the Cayuga’s finally. Jimi & Nina after Jimi Hendrix and Nina Samone, two of my favorite musicians with fun names easy to learn (I hope).

My Blue Swedish I dubbed Scuba Steve since he took to underwater swimming immediately. Cousteau didn’t seem to roll off the tongue & make me laugh as much.
