|If you sleep with your beak in the watering hole, you don't have to get up to get a drink!!|
I guess the quick action and getting them fresh water was a good thing, because this morning all 22 were happily peeping up a storm. They have discovered that a few of them were now big enough to actually take a strong jump and land on the floor beyond the brooder, LOL! Our babies are growing up. SO.... today they graduated to the duck house.
|WOOT! Their available space just got about 6X bigger!|
|It took a few minutes, but once they found the water, they were all over it!|
|Look at those sweet babies at the back snuggling together!|
|And so it begins!|
I'm a bit anxious about tonight when I put the older ducks in there. I know they will be able to see over the divider, and I hope they are curious but not aggressive toward their new sisters. When I close them in, I'll probably sit in there with them for awhile. I have NO idea what I'll do if they all freak out and start smacking each other around.
Spring has made an amazing showing in the last couple of days.
The pollen count has skyrocketed, and the bees are taking advantage of the early blooms.
|I'm hoping the plum trees will actually give us a harvest this year!|
|The Bradford Pears are lovely. Too bad they don't produce anything but shade!|
