These ducklings are simply too cute. I’ve said before that ducklings are my favorite little animals, ducks are one of my favorite adult animals as well. It’s hard to get anything done around here with so much cuteness walking around.
I try to keep an eye on these guys to make sure none of the cats are going after them. Mama duck is one tough cookie, she’s even threatened to attack Tara if she comes too close, but I still like to make sure she’s not getting them too far away. We had an eagle flying very low yesterday and found her with the ducklings way down the driveway. The ducks are the only animals we have that aren’t behind an electric fence for protection. They aren’t behind a fence because they simply fly over it.
I love how the immediately take to water, if I had a deep enough pool they’d be swimming already. On a sad note, none of our guinea keets have survived. The cold weather was simply too much for them to handle, which is what I figured would happen.
Could you get work done with these cuties around?Filed under Around the Garden, Feathered & Furred | Comments (7)
