We bought 12 little day old Pekin ducks to help out the diminishing duck flock and soothe my ruffled feelings. They are the cutest little things. They are very friendly and when we clean out their little brooding pen, they come running to greet us making little affectionate peeping sounds and keeping their little black eyes on us. They are 10 days old now and starting into their teenage (ugly duckling) phase. We are enjoying them immensely, even though they are little pigs. It is amazing how fast they can turn their clean pen into a watery mess, but they are eating and drinking and growing like little weeds. We will have to get them a new pen this weekend, because their little heads are just about to bang into the top of the current pen. Now you know what we will be doing on Easter weekend.
Have a happy and safe Easter!
