Congratulations, they are adorable when they are little, and grow up beautiful but way too fast!
Congratz!!! I am very excited for you! I remember when my two pekins arrived, now they are massive, . I am getting seven chicks on June 8th, so I am excited for that too. Hope you have fun with your new babies!
Does anyone know if that's too cold, to let them play today. Maybe I'll just put warmer water in the pool! Please, any suggestions??? I gotta get n the move, I have to get ready for work!!!
Oh good, I thought I was going nuts when I looked at those pictures and thought, "Are those WH?" Love those! Very jealous
LadyIsadora, I like your suggestions! I'm trying to teach mine "treats". They already answer me when I say, "I'm coming, babies."
Reese, love the morning photos, hehe Someone looks very chipper about going outside!
Sorry, I meant to answer this above. I give mine supervised playtime in water. They are only allowed to be in there so long before I pull them out because they will start to shiver after a bit. If you watch them, you can tell about when that point is approaching (ie ten minutes, fifteen, etc.) I read that mother ducks will monitor the time their babies spend in the water, so that's what I do.
@Lizzy456 Congrats! Looking forward to pics. My babies (2 pekins & 2 rouens) are 3 weeks old today. They grow so incredibly fast!
Mine have been going outside in the daytime for the last week or so and I'm up in Maine. The first 2 weeks of life they stayed in the brooder but they seem pretty plump and well insulated now and they demand to go out every day around 7:30am now. They are very vocal about this in the morning until they can go out and graze and splash in a pot of water.
Today I'm going to try to make a more permanent structure for them outside with a run that extends into the stream a little so they can have all the fresh water they like.
Gotta love watching them when they are unaware of you.
OH so cute. I love them. Babies are precious. Sweet protective moms.
eeeee, love the rump on the upside down one.
