    Well the security cam paid off... For two reasons 1. I get to show you what happened instead of tell you. 2. I can watch the little darlings while I type this so it doesn't happen again. Yesterday I tried to make a naris cleaning station. While supervised, the 'lings just pecked around the hole and didn't use it at all. I went to try it again today. Allie had grown enough that I thought I should open up the hole a little so she couldn't get her head caught in it, after all ducks are geniuses at devising ways to hurt themselves. Again they just pecked at the hole and the lid - no idea there was water inside. So I dabbled my finger in the water. No clue. Well I thought, when I first got the 'lings, I dipped their bills in the waterers so they would know where the water was. Maybe I should try the same thing here. I randomly grabbed Latte (currently the smallest) and dipped her bill in the water...

    Well it will only take a day or two to outgrow that...

    I will just put a warning here... This whole thread is suspect Julie... Make sure your neighbors are out before viewing [​IMG]. There that should save me a bunch of typing.

    OK, day 5 roll call and weigh in... (days 1 and 2 they were in transit so they aren't documented.)

    Latte 2.3oz up 35% grower of the day, but still the smallest.
    [​IMG]

    Casey 2.4oz up 20% should eventually be the smallest.
    [​IMG]

    She still really likes the camera...
    [​IMG]

    Allie 2.9oz (with an occasional flash of 3) up 26%

    I spoke with Latte, and she agreed to do a special picture just for Julie. Casey wanted to help out too.

    [​IMG] It has webs.
    [​IMG] It has bills.
    [​IMG] It has cute.
    [​IMG] It has a dark Casey web on a white towel.
    [​IMG] It has teeny-tiny toe nails.
    [​IMG] It has little bitty nares.
    [​IMG] It has a peeking-hiding duck.

    Julie, Please be very careful when viewing this picture.[​IMG] Breathe and enjoy but please don't explode. [​IMG]
