    At this size they are still dirty after a swim, the tubs just not big enough, so after their bath I shower them off, they really seem to love it!

    It's so cute. My adults strike the same pose under the sprinkler, they also will follow the spray from the hose in that "at attention" stance.

    Thank you for the welcome :) I can see that this is going to be a dangerous thread to be on. There are so many lovely duck pictures here.....

    Apparently ducks like to play in water from the hose, too. They loved grazing on the oat grass while it was wet :)

    Ducks have an affinity for just about anything that is wet...or damp for that matter. At some point they will begin to root down into the mud and muck going after grubs and stuff like that. My duck pens look like lunar landscapes.

    So freakin adorable! My Dear Husband found this out. We try to get them into the bath each night, since they were one week old. He gets to bathe them while I clean & prep the brooder for the night. I went in two nights ago and he had the shower going on them. They loved it!

    So cute eh?!

    ALL 7 are quacking now
    They can't all be hens?.... Can they? They are one month old in a few days.
