Ducks, Ducks and More Ducks


The babies are the dark brown ones on the left.

We have 17, full grown, free range ducks now! Actually, about 6 weeks ago, one of our full grown ducks, who had disappeared and we thought had possibly been attached and killed by a raccoon, came strolling up behind the house with 11 baby ducklings in tow! It was the cutest site!!! Well, PTL, they have grown quickly, since we were afraid that they would freeze with winter on its way. However, they are all basically grown and doing very well. We have started feeding them dog food to supplement the bugs that they had been eating. Thankfully they love the off brand of dog food just as much as anything else!

17 ducks, neat. I'm glad moma duck wasn't attacked by a raccoon.
I didn't know ducks would eat dog food. How funny. :)
