Hello everybody, views from around the world!
I'd like to welcome back Huey, Dewey and Louie. They've had a wonderful Christmas break. Very long one. I think they've enjoyed it. A good break from the internet world, just them bathing in their waterer pan, and eating. They told me its not easy being a duck on the internet. No I'm kidding, but I haven't heard otherwise.
When I got them, their bellies were bare. Now soft feathers have taken over. They showed no character.... Now they splash around in the waterer, Living life like if it was a joke. Amazing on how creatures flip when they're loved, and cared for properly.
The one closes to the camera is Dewey, she`s a bit on the shy side. She`s the youngest, and smallest of them. The feathers on her neck poke up, its very cute!
The farthest one on the right, she`s Huey. She`s the poser. She loves the camera. Her feathers are nicely smooth. Her back, smooth and flat. Her beak is the brightest of them all. She loves sitting on laps. Although the first few times, her nails dig into your leg, and it truly hurts.
Well, This month they hopefully will be moved to the second coop. The run will be tidied up. I`ve heard ducks love to play in the snow.
I can`t wait to have ducklings this year. I`m expecting Febuary or March to have eggs. I`ll eat the eggs for a few days or weeks. When it starts to warm up, and I see them mate... I`ll start to collect to hatch.
I`m also going to add some more ducks (female) to the mix. I`m thinking two more birds. Some that are proven layers.
Well, I think I`ll leave it at that for this week. More pictures and info next week. Don`t forget to stay tuned for the following posts:
Till next time,
