Just Ducky

The new brood of adolescent ducks was delivered to their new duck hut Sunday night. Since it was already dark outside, we kept them penned in the hut until Monday morning. They seemed to have weathered their trip just fine and proceeded to eat a bedtime snack.

Monday morning they were introduced to the pond and their new neighbor, Methuselah. At first they ignored each other, but soon were out paddling together. These new ducks have the tiniest wings and we fear they are completely flightless. The pond will serve as their protection from predators. Hopefully, Methuselah will show them the ropes and help them to survive as she has all these months!

They are adorable, and look very happy in the water with their new friend. I like their colors too.
