July is nearly over and it has been hot. Hot weather puts our duckies in a bad mood, especially the boys. Grumpy boys make things especially hard on the girls given our upside down ratio of 3 boys and 2 girls. However over all it has been an event-less month or so.

The girls are dealing with the boys and our little flock of pet duckies is general happy healthy and peaceful.

Here are a few pictures and videos.

We have company (including my animal loving niece) so the duckies might get more treats and attention this weekend.

No power = no well pump = no water

The hardest thing about no electricity is keeping the ducks clean and comfortable. No power = no well pump = no water

We actually keep about 10gal of drinking water and 3 6 gal jugs for washing and flushing around the house just in case, but duckie care requires much more water than we can store.

Here are a few pictures of cooling off the duckies with frozen peas and ice cold lettuces
