Speckles ducklings are doing great. Mom and dad took them outside to the big enclosed play yard and let them have some fun.
It hasn't been used in awhile so the grass needed to be cut with the lawnmower. The mower didn't reach all the way to the edge but the duckies didn't care - they were going to have fun plowing through it and eating it anyway!
And they had their first taste of mini-swimming~
This is how they sleep at night - in a big ducky pile!
This is LuckyDucky #13. She/he was hatched on Wednesday afternoon. She was a lazy duckling and did not want to come out of her egg and greet the world. Dad helped her out a wee bit.
She is less than 1 day old in this picture and she's having the time of her life! That's her right in the center. She's holding her own~
She didn't know how to eat so she just watched the others. She's a fast learner!
The ducklings spent yesterday in the safe pen for 11 hours. They have the time of their lives running around in there with sun and shade and food and water. Life is good~~
