Swimming Lessons

Um…these babies don’t need no stinkin lessons!

Weeeeeeee! Being a duck is GWEAT!

It took a while to catch these guys and put them in their little pool, but when their feet hit the water they were OFF!

They played and dove and splashed for about 20 minutes and then I scooped them out to dry in the sunshine.

I’m learning the differences between chickens and ducks and here’s what I’ve found out so far…

Ducks don’t tear up my yard like chickens, but they poop just as much.

Ducks are not as smart as chickens…sorry guys, but chickens put themselves to bed and you have to be “herded”.

Ducks need their food and water close together since they need water to eat their food.

Ducks and chickens have almost the same exact diet, except that ducks drink about 10 times more water than chickens.

Chickens and ducks are equally sweet and funny and loveable.

  1. Oh, how sweet! You are already an expert with ducks! And in a little while, you may have duck eggs. Is Jim as good with telling the sexes as he is with your other critters? It’s amazing Deb, just when I think you are all out of the fine feathered friends, more show up somehow.

    • Jim is clueless on “sexing” ducks. One of them has a high voice and the other has a low voice. Believe it or not this is one way people tell the difference. Crazy huh? He’s an expert on kittens though! Ducks are sillier than chickens. They are the comedians of the avian world. I’m having a lot of fun with them.
