Ever since we got two new additions to the homestead,
I have Ernie's Rubber Ducky song playing on repeat in my head.
We got ducks!
They look like White Pekin Ducks.
The people we got them from likely got them for Easter, since in their duckling pictures, their feathers were tinted pink and blue.
Don't know the sex of them, don't care.
We talked about getting ducks before, so when these ducks showed up on a local exchange site, for free, we couldn't resist! She had no shelter for them and didn't want to build one for the coming winter, so she was giving them away.
I love the little curls on the tips of their tail feathers!
These two are tight! They stay together everywhere!
So much fun to watch!
The ducks are fun to watch when they get into the pool.
It's fun to see them dunking themselves and splashing around.
The previous owners gave this to us, but eventually, I'd like to get a little bit bigger one, so they can actually swim around some. It looks like they are standing and not really swimming. The water is only about 6 inches or so deep.
