In 2012, I went bonkers for geese. (like I made peopel tired of me at work) In 2014, it's the duck that wins me over. I ordered 10 wh ducks in the fall of 2013. They are one year old now. I gave away all but 2. The two mated and I wound up with 9 babies. I gave away those that I thought were males. At present, I have the parents, a girl and a 'baby' girl. The 'baby' girl was actually kicked out of her nest in the egg. I put her back in; she was kicked out again. So, as it was in the heat of summer, I put her in my trunk for the times I was at work (no incubator). Slept with her as an egg at night. Hatched her one week after the others. I didn't know if she'd make it but after 3 nights of my sleeping with her at night to keep her warm, she was eventually residing in a dog crate with my crested baby for the first 2 weeks. She is smaller but just a beautiful. Her name is Daisy. (for the flower, not the duck). At the same time, I obtained a free baby crested duck from craigslist. I named this baby, Flower, and it was pals with Daisy. Now, I see there is no curl in the tail at all. I'm pretty sure she is a she. Her name was changed to Miro during the time I thought he may be a he and named him after my Italian friend. If indeed she is a girl, I will continue to say Miro, because that's what she's used to, but will think "Mira", like "look look" in Spanish. My little 'herd' is 5-ducks strong. Four WH and one crested. So cute. My bigger 'herd', the geese, is 4-geese strong. I am crazy over these babies. I feel bad for humans who don't have ducks or geese.
