    Duck hickies! On my forearms! They loves me so much.

    Also a splash from the dishpan of water in their pen - BEFORE I had a chance to empty the mucky water and make it all clean and fresh.

    My ducks practically gave me a heat stroke for Mother's Day.
    It's been so hot here today that I've spent the afternoon refreshing their water and spraying them with the waterhose while I'm about to pass out from the heat. [​IMG]
    What can you do, though, when you have cute ducky butts like this? [​IMG]

    Mine almost gave me heat stroke too LOL I did the same thing, spent too much time out in the heat with the pool and water hose making sure my ducklings kept cool. My grown ducks stayed on the pond all day, they normally spend most of the time foraging around the property with little spurts in the pond but it was just stinking hot today.

    My Turkey Hen gave us 6 babies yesterday..well 7, she hatched six of her own eggs and 1 chicken egg Buff Orpington mixed with Cuckoo Maran.

    My Husband gave me a Nook Color, love it!!
