We picked up our ducks at the feed store today! I held them in a cardboard box on my lap and watched them the whole ride home. They are so cute. I mean really really cute.
When we arrived home, Jeff got them all cozy in the bathtub downstairs. (We never use that bathtub, except for soaking and washing wool and for occasional showers. We use the bathtub upstairs.) He lined it with fresh straw and filled up their feeder and waterer. He put in a heat lamp to keep them warm and cozy. Then he brought in a fresh tray of greens from the greenhouse. They might be a little young to eat it yet, but they had fun putting the grass in their little bills and it makes a fun little jungle for them to play in and explore.
Bracken was so fascinated watching them.
I am so excited to have ducks. What a fun new adventure we are on!
I’m sure I’ll be spending a lot more time in the bathroom than usual……….
