    My 3 y/o asked what was so funny!

    We bought 8 ducks this past spring. The males grew faster than the girls. But all the ducks seem to grow faster than the chicks. We had 5 redstars at the same time.

    So I would say normal too and they sure are cute [​IMG]

    I am hoping its a boy! Its funny how it still tries to hide under the chick. The chick literally goes flying now.. [​IMG]
