    in no time flat!

    Im thinking that the two penciled ones are drakes because of the color. The white one is a hen, I hope, because it never shts up![​IMG]

    I think they are around 7 or 8 weeks old now. I was hoping for my original guess at two girls and a boy, but im thinking its the opposite now.

    OK, how did you get them to pose in exactly the same positions? Did you bribe them with frozen peas or something?

    Quote:I bought them from a member here, who bought them from a guy at the lucasville swap days. He will be there again the first weekend of june I believe, with more ducks. There is always a ton of poultry there. They dedicate a whole barn to the poultry association. Then there are tons of others who bring poultry and other livestock. If you like flea markets, its worth driving there.

    Too bad you live so far away. If my hunch is correct, one of the drakes will be finding a new home. Im gonna keep them around a little longer to make sure they are for sure drakes before I sell or trade one away. They have so much personality that I hate to get rid of any of them, but you can only have so many boys running around.[​IMG]
