    This is the journal of the Quakers a.k.a. My Duck Flock.
    To start off let me introduce you to all of my ducks:

    This is Miel ( Me-L ) Which is French for Honey. He's my Favorite Duck. He's a Magpie drake. He's
    very friendly, maybe a little bit shy. He's a real sweetheart and enjoys a good swim. He has beautiful feathers
    which can "glow" blue green, or purple. He likes staying
    close to his friends and is overall the most charming bird of The Quakers.

    This is Cheri, cheri means darling in French. She's a Magpie Hen. She's shy and doesn't like to be
    alone. She likes to feel protected and hangs out with the bigger ducks. She'll put her head under another duck's breast. She's a charming little bird and I'm so glad to have her.

    This is Jasper my goofy, but sweet black runner girl. She likes playing around and does what she likes.
    She is the most friendly duck of The Quackers and has very beautiful plumage. There isn't any duck she really likes to hang around, so far as I know, she just, as I said, does what she likes. I really love her.

    This is Ree, one of my Khaki Campbell girls, named after Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. She's
    sweet country girl and LOVES water . She's hard to tell from her "sister" except for she's slightly bigger
    and has a more gray bill. She's rather skiddish and prefers to stay with her "sister". She's sweet and shy and just wonderful.

    This is Mae, the other Khaki girl and Ree's "sister". She's sweet ans shy just like her "sister". She's a bit smaller thanRee and has a more brown bill. She's LOVES water, a little more than her "sister" and spends lots of her time there. She, just like her "sister" is skiddish and prefers to stay with her "sister. She's a charming country girl and it wouldn't be the same without her.

    This is Daffodil, who I usually call Daffi for short. She's a Lavender Ancona girl and a real Goofball. She's the most food and drink loving duck of The Quackers. When I come outside and they're low on food or water she'll come right up to me quacking above everyone else. She's definitely the loudest. She also is the most social and won't leave the rest for a moment. I'm Glad to have her.

    Here is Shirley, named after Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables series. She's a Chocolate Ancona girl. She's a sweet, lady-like little ducky. She seems to follow along with the rest of the group, and does whatever most of The Quackers are doing. She's a sweet little lady and is nice to have around.

    This is Sherlock, named after Sherlock Holmes which I LOVE to read. He's a Black Ancona Drake. He had Niacin
    Deficiency lately, but with some advice ( thank you, guys! ) He's WAY better and walks up the pathway to the pond and gets out again very well. He LOVES water a LOT and Would probably spend all his time there if he could. He's a sweet, handsome boy and I love him!

    [​IMG]

    Last, but not least is Alton. Alton, named after Alton Brown, is a Black Ancona Drake. He's the biggest of the flock and
    tends to do what almost everyone else is. Cheri sees him as protection and maybe some of the others do to.He's a nice duckie, though I wouldn't say he likes being around people that much. He's big strong and handsome and nice to have around. And He dosen't like to have his picture taken it would seem.[​IMG]

    These are my duckies, my darlings, The Quackers. I Love them a lot, and I hope you will love them too and enjoy their journal.

    I loved reading this and most of all appreciated how many times you wrote love in your descriptions of your beautiful ducks. It's wonderful how much you love them and appreciate each of their personalities. They are very lucky to have such a wonderful caring owner. I love all my animals too (fur and feathers). I can't imagine not having animals...the unconditional love and joy they bring. I look forward to your next entry.

    Thanks. I've been wanting to get more ducks for awhile after our others passed away [​IMG]. I really enjoy them. It's so nice to hear their quacking. I love their different personalities, and seeing what they do day by day.

    I to enjoyed your journal. You can tell all of your ducks are loved and cared for. You can tell you've spent a lot of time with them because of you describing their personalities. Look forward to reading more about your ducks. Love the pics too and thanks so much for sharing.

    Thanks so much for telling us about your ducks! They all sound like so much fun to be around; you have a wonderful flock!
    Also, this might sound weird, but thank you for naming one of your ducks Sherlock. I thought that was a good name for a drake, but I only have girls! I absolutely love those books, too! I am so addicted! Glad to find someone else who likes the same thing! [​IMG] I almost named one of my ducks Irene after Irene Adler in "A Scandal in Bohemia" (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes), but none of them looked like it. [​IMG]

    I am looking forward to hearing more about the Quackers! Say hi to Sherlock (and the others) for me! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That's a good one! I'm going to make time to read a Sherlock Holmes story tonight! I think I'm experiencing withdrawl symptoms from not having read any for a while! [​IMG]

    Are all of your ducks in your avatar? Which is the one on the far right?
