Breaking Out

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~~

So until next time...........

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Sounds like ducky 13 is a survivor. They're so cute. We're a bit surprised that they're different colours...we don't know much about ducks. We're so glad you found them.

I was so sad to read about Speckles and that your Dad hurt his shoulder. I hope the joy of these beautiful creatures can make up for the hard times your family has experienced lately.

Number 13 has come a long way baby. It must be hard work breaking out of a shell. Why if you had claustrophobia you would want out of there really fast.
Thanks for being a friend
