New Baby Ducklings

We have three adorable little ducklings!  We love the sound of happy baby ducks and chicks -- its like sweet little chirping birds.  These three are Pekin ducks (they will be solid white).  They are at home with Todd, Andrea, and the kids until they are big enough to join the others at the pond on the ranch.

Our ducks love the pond!

On Sunday, March 4th, We introduced our 3 ducks to their new home.  They were released into the pond and are in absolute "duck heaven".  They are loving their new home!  They have so much water to swim in all day and their own floating home when they want shelter. They still come quickly when we call them -- they love to be fed treats by hand!  All three ducks are different breeds. We have a cayuga, a rouen, and a welsh harlequin.

Our Aqua Duck House

We completed our "aqua duck house".  It is a floating habitat for our ducks.  It floats in the pond at the ranch and will provide a nice floating shelter for our pet ducks.
