Muscovy Duckling Update

DSC_0006The four ducklings that were born here are almost a month old. They sure look different! They’re living with one of the chocolate ducklings I bought at the Poultry Swap earlier this month. She was being aggressively picked on by the older ducks (and the other chocolate duckling) and much prefers being housed with the younger ones.

They have a nice large corner of the barn to themselves and they get to go outside to bathe and forage every day while I complete my outside chores. If I stand still in one place too long, I’ll soon feel little duck bills tasting my shoes.
