Yesterday I brought home two Rouen ducklings. As soon as I got home I regretted not buying four (that was our duck number). I couldn't go back yesterday to get more because we only have one car right now (thanks to a busted radiator) and my hubby needed the car yesterday. I went back this morning and all the Rouens were gone, but I decided to go ahead and get two Pekins. The Rouens already seem to be a bit happier to have more friends. Is this my imagination? Now if I can just get these four to be as happy to see me as my two week old chicks are when I walk in the room all would be wonderful. BTW, once we put them outside will they do OK on a thick layer of pine straw and leaves or should I clean up the area and put something else down for them? OHMYPICKLES! I HAVE DUCKS!
