Duckpdate 7/1

The ducklings are getting huge and we are planning a release for them - hopefully this week. It is back-breaking work caring for these guys. You can change their water in their pool and within minutes, it's disgusting again! Add to that it's impossible to stand up in their enclosure and you've got some serious back pain!

I feel so bad for Twinkie's mom taking on this mess, that I have tried to pop in a few times and wash out their pool for her. I've brought them guppies a few times too! Boy does that ever add to the excitement in the pool!

In the few days since I took this picture on July 1, they have lost even more of the yellow down and look near identical in size to Mallory! That little guy on the left was shaking a guppy!

As my mother used to say, "they grow up so fast...."

How true, rottrover - they sure have grown. We have been watching them at Twink's house, or is that now a zoo? BOL

Thanks so much for the duckling update! Mama has been falling down on the job [again], so we'd missed the news about the big move until we saw Twinks' blog. Sure hope the baby ducks all make it.
