Update on Ducks

Joel built the little ducks a ramp to get into the "pond" he made out of the bottom of a big plastic barrel. They love it. They trot up the ramp and jump into the water. Fang, the cat, thinks they're pretty interesting, too. That's why they are running around loose on the lawn. Eventually, when they are big enough they will be moved out to the real pond. For now we move them around every day in the duck tractor. They are delightful little creatures.

We have 5 new additions to the family, little Khaki Campbell ducklings. They are currently residing in a new chicken tractor until they are big enough to go live out at the pond. Hopefully they will eat slugs which love the banks of the pond and migrate into the garden from there. And give us duck eggs.
