Weed-like growth of the cute feathery ones...

I took my camera to the barn today to get some shots of the little chicks, but stopped in to see my ducklings first. But my camera battery died after four shots! I will work on chick photos tomorrow.

The ducklings are getting HUGE...



This one is definitely a drake. I'm hoping he's the only boy! He's very cute with markings.


Check out those teeny-tiny feathers, especially on the tail!



Another cuties. Mama-Ronna has been moulting so there are lots of feathers around!



And little Twitchy!

More photos soon...

    1. Their wings just crack me up. But they are amazingly strong once they reach adulthood!!

  3. I always get embarrassed when a battery dies - all of that staggering around, knuckle-biting over-acting ...

    Duck teenagers!

    1. Not that the ducks ever seem embarrassed about anything (including nooky in the kiddy pool with a sibling! Yeeesh!)

  4. Eventually they will grow into the beak and feet!

  8. It's so sweet how they have distinct personalities. The drake looks confident and strong, Ronna duck appears soft and maternal and Twitchy looks uncertain--or are they just posing for the camera?

    1. No, they really do have different personalities and you've pretty much twigged it!
