    The babies are growing so quickly! They've already more than doubled in size since they were born last week. I can't keep enough food in their bowls, they're constantly eating everything in it. I've never had more than 2 baby ducklings at a time...all I can say is WOW!!

    They're so much different than the Pekins or the Call ducks. The Runners all move as though they're one. One moves and they all follow closely. I absolutely love watching them. I wished they were just a bit older today because it was almost 80 out.

    Here's pictures I took a little while ago while they were running around on my living room floor.

    Those are fun pictures of your runners! Really like the picture quality of the first ones...[​IMG]
     
  3. They are utterly adorable, I love that one guy inspecting the little spot on the floor while everyone else is just casually standing around.
    And the one where they are in such a tight unit they're almost weaving their beaks together.

    Hi - Great pics!

    Was wondering if it was ok to use them on my info page about ducks + ducklings:

    http://www.squidoo.com/identification_of_australian_ducks_and_ducklings

    of course I would credit them as your work and add any link to a (g-rated) website that you would like.

    I am a native animal rescuer, and it is great to have pictures of ducklings
    as a reference to ID them when they come in [​IMG]

    And are the yelow ducklings like a smoky yellow, or is that just the flash?
    They are all cute regardless!!! [​IMG]
