Our Momma Runner Duck successfully hatched all 9 eggs that were viable. These babies are now about 4 weeks old and are starting to lose their duckling down. They're so sweet and soft and utterly terrified of us.... I'm sure it has nothing to do with the kids going into their pen to catch them.... by means of conquer and divide!
Like a duck takes to water (not always true... it's definitely learned behavior, IMO)
Sitting duck.... (just as the fox who went out on a chilly night, he prayed that the Lord would give him light. He had many a mile to go that night before he reached the Town-O, Town-O, he had many a mile to go that night before he reached the Town-O..... this 'catchy' tune is on the Nickel Creek - our kids LOVE it.... )
Duck soup... well, that would be the best garden fertilizer left behind in their waters... and you tho't it had to do w/ a soup found at an Asian restaurant, eh? Let's hope they're not one and the same!
Duck Muck... see above
