darling ducks...

i have such a heart for ducks
especially Pekin Ducks

so when our friends had a desire to raise some
as a part of a homeschool project
they asked if we would mind adding them to our flock..
we warned them
that some might end up in a pot by winter..

they'd sure be happy till that day!
because we LOVE Pekin ducks!!!

WE are a ducky kind of a family!
Every day can be a fun day when a duck is around!
One thing we noticed about the new additions
Snow White and her gang..
is that 
while they hang with our
Daisy, Poppy, & Lily..
they don't MINGLE with them..
in fact..
early on,
there was some
duck fights

who knew?  
seems Snow's quite the hottie…
their was a disagreement about ALPHA position..
But who really wants to mess with Poppy?
He's a JUMBO pekin..
whilst Snow and her gang
are just Pekin…
what WERE the boys thinking?

lately all is fine
they take turn in the kiddie pool..
one group in..
then the other…

there goes Snow and her gang...

they have lots of fun!
we are SO excited to get the official BIG pond going ..
but we have to finish up the Duck Aviary first…
and THAT is fast running out of time to be done..
Winter IS approaching..

or not..
lets test the waters..

oh yeah!
good times!

all done!

and their back ..
time for fluffing
preening and general grooming of self..
see how they are all together..
but still

a bit separate?

cracks me up!

I love ducks!
