It’s official the ducks are all grown up!
Sorta sad there’ll be no more fluffy butts (for awhile at least til we get a new batch of chickens come spring), but we are happy that they’ve integrated nicely with the chickens, ducks and even goats. That means the baby duck chapter has come to a close here at the urban homestead. Jordanne says I spoiled them. She may be right but at least at this age they STILL love to sit on my lap and put their heads under my arm. I make sure to give them each personal contact each day because it makes a big difference when they grow up – they are calmer and easier to handle. The duckies each have their own quirky personality which is more becoming more and more obvious over time and hopefully by the New Year they’ll be laying.

PS since these photos were taken (early last week) the ducks are now completely feathered! Actually, I am beginning to have a hard time telling the new and old ducks apart!
