    So today is my babies first day staying outside, all day. I know it was a little over due, but DH has been working late and didn't have much time to complete the pen and coop. So far it's just something that we can manage with until DH gets more time to build what I want. But anyways I think this will do for now. Below are some pictures of the past week.

    This was their first "uncaged" trip outside. Bc I'm new to this I didn't realize how close they would stay to me once I let them roam free. Had I have know that, I would have let them free a lot sooner. Live and learn!

    Once again they followed me everywhere, and they would freak if I would get to far away or get out of sight.

    So they found my flowers, while I wasn't looking...not good. I think they only ate like two or three blooms.

    And all this time, I thought they hated me. They never wanted me to touch them or hold them. Then we went outside and they were right under my feet. When I sat down to watch them play and "root around" they would end up between my feet, nibbling on my shoelaces. It was pretty funny. And boy does it TICKLE when they nibble on your legs...[​IMG]

    What cute ducklings! They look like they're having a grand time on their adventure in your yard. [​IMG]
