Happy Ducks

My ducklings are really growing. I had to put them in a bigger container so I borrowed Echo's hay tub. I put it in my office so I can sit next to them and talk to them, they answer back. They really peep like crazy when I leave and try to follow so I leave them with fresh water to play in.

The tub is raised at one end to keep their bedding dry. Ducks are very messy. They love to play in water and quickly make a mess. They love it when I chop some lettuce and put it in their water. They are like children with ice cream and cake at a birthday party! But unlike (most) human children, one of them has to jump right in the middle of the fun and poop.


One of them has a pink spot on the end of it's bill and I think that one is a girl because the other seems protective of her.

When they get tired they walk 'uphill' and take a nap.
