Ducklings!

We have 19 ducklings.  Grace, our Indian Runner duck hatched 8 ducklings on July 15th.  All are healthy and thriving amongst the corn, squash and broccoli in the garden.  They enjoy their own kiddy pool.

It looks  like at least one is pure Indian Runner.  One is a Khaki Campbell/Indian runner cross.

One is a Peking/ Swedish cross. Two are Indian Runner/Swedish.  Not sure of the other 3 or

gender yet.

Phaedra, our Khaki Campbell duck, hatched eleven ducklings 2 weeks ago.  They are living in the duckling “nursery”  – a 16′ X 4′ covered enclosure in the garden.  They are all mix breed – Swedish/Peking, Swedish Indian Runner, Khaki Campbell/Peking, Khaki Campbell/Indian Runner.
