GrMa Duck sits next to
our precious duckies and
gives you a closer look
at them and talks with "you"
about MissAdventure, Queenie, and Kouta.

A new video of our six pet duckies
(taken by GrMaDuck)
You will get to see their new outside house and the duck avaviry nearly finished.

Oh how we love them!

but this is a good shot of the layout
of the duck aviary in our backyard

Dinner time outside
Welsh Harlequin playing in the leaves and acorns.

More outside fun

Duckies smile for the camera :-)
Queenie:  our female Cayuga

picture taken with GrMaDuck's phone camera
I brought out the old brooder box just in case they want a place sheltered thinking it might give them a warmer place to sit. But they mostly are have fun playing in the leaves and having the space to properly preen.

Happy Duckies!

preening

2nd field trip

This how wet & dirty their under bellys are from being too close in the brooder box. We need to really limit their time in the brooder box from now on. They are just getting too big to have enough room to stay clean in their box (inside).  MamaDuck and I GrMa Duck are doubling our efforts to replace bedding often and give them as much time outside the brooder box as possible while the DuckHouse is being finished.

Right now, they are foraging and preening and LOVING it outside!  I think as long as someone is home to check on them, we will let them be outside as much as possible.

FWD: From Mama Duck

Their first field trip outside! They love it! :)

--This was taken with my phone camera, mine is officially not working again.  I took them out into Alex and Bianca's old pin which is about 6'x10'.  Their real pin is HUGE in comparison, but we are constructing the house in it right now, so it wouldn't be safe for them to be in there.  Plus, I thought this would be a good introduction to the outdoors.  They LOVED it!!! They were so happy out there!  They were out for about 3 hours while I did some work in the pin and GrpaDuck and I cut down a couple low limbs on a tree right next to their pin.  Hopefully I'll be getting some more pictures off my phone to put up.  :)
