    Sorry, I have been really busy lately!So the injured Penkin has passed. And the mallard migrated.Know i have a Blue Swedish and a Cayuga. They are both doing great and I really enjoy them.

    This is a picture before the mallard flew away.(white freckles-pescado,big black one-mike,small-beau)
    My dad goes to target about twice a week to buy frozen corn that the ducks love! They come will come running to you when you go outside!GOOD NEWS:We will be getting 6-12 new baby mallard ducking in May!But we do not know if the ducks we have now are boy or girl, we will just have to wait. Thanks :)

    how old are Freckles and Mike? I'm not seeing a drake tail feather, well maybe on Freckles not sure. By the way they are beautiful and what a gorgeous place for them.. maybe this will help you decide on gender.. http://www.majesticwaterfowl.org/artquacks.htm

    yes they have a house, but they never use it. They just sit on the edge of the pond.
