make way for ducklings

Pongo, Biscuit, & Beaker
As a family, we rarely, if ever, impulse-buy. We budget and save, and plan for months when it comes to large-ish purchases. BUt, it appears that planning & so forth go out the window when ducks go on sale at the feed store.
 Boom - we have ducks. Aren't they darling?? and every time they squeak their little tails wiggle :}
 The whole thing wasn't entirely unthought out, though. We have an order of chicks coming in this week to replace the mean old birds I can't wait to see go. (You have to replace layers about every two years. We get chicks every year so we're never without eggs). We'll put the chicks and the ducklings in the same brooder box and they can grow up together and be pals & whatnot.
 In the meantime, it's awfully fun to let them run round the house when "responsible" people have left for the day ;}


  1. This made me smile. :) OOH they're so adorable! ^_^ Lovely names too... Makes me remember when we got goslings, yeeears ago.

    Also, I tagged you with the Sunflower award because you're awesome. *nods* You don't have to do it if you're busy but I thought I would let you know. ;)


  2. Oooooh! Squeal. They are so fluffily sweet. Ducks seem so very A.A. Milne and Beatrix Potter. And somehow they appear more intelligent as grown-ups than other poultry. No?
