 33 Ducklings!

We just (finally) recieved our order for 30 Kahki Campbell ducklings!!! They are seriously cute. I (of course) took pics, more then a hundred, actually, and here are a couple. :D Sorry, can’t do a hundred! I’m picking the cutest. ;)

But I have one question. We got a duckling with a deformed beak. The top and bottom don’t line up, so the top is off to one side, and the bottom off to another. They overlap in the middle, but hang off on the sides. Is there any way to fix this without hurting the duckling? He eats and drinks, but looks like he has trouble.

And now for the pics!





The hen there is Addie, and all the ducklings are clustered around her. :)





Awww… he’s tired! They’re so funny when they lay down, they totally stretch out and just “plop” down on the ground, letting their head rest on the ground, and their legs stick out. :D And they all huddle under the light! :D











Isn’t this pic darling? :D

And now, off topic with ducks, here are our goats. They are supposed to be eating the grass in our area, and they’re lazing around on our sidewalk.




Okay, that’s all! :D Please post what you think. ;)

Yeah, they’re really "lovable". :D

The lazy goats are realllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly cute. I was playing with our 2 year old buck last night. He gets pretty rough, but he’s not mean at all. :D

YES, spiders are awful! I see them in my house all the time and I scream until my dad comes to the scene with a shoe and toilet paper and kills the spider.

I thought he was verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry lazy. How big is he?

Well, I don’t scream... but I hate them! I don’t like any bugs I do like worms. They love our compost pile.

No, Cosmo isn’t that lazy. :) He eats though, quite a bit! It’s hard to explain, but here’s a picture, if I can get it to work. :)



That’s him. He’s a bigger then that now though.



I just wanted to show you this one too. This is Pegs. :D She is SOOOO adorable.

as for the crooked bill, not sure on what to do, might need vet assistance for that one may need surgery to fix it... or realign it with bangages, and a thin nossle syringe ... to feed it and stuff

They’re definitely growing fast, and cut-er! :D

The one with the crooked beak is eating and drinking. He doesn’t seem any less healthy then the other ducklings but his tongue looks worse every day. it like getting squished in areas and then the point of the tongue is sticking straight up. It’s really weird...

We’ve had a 7 die from a lack of protein. They couldn’t even stand up so we brought them into the house and feed them and nursed them, still 6 died, and other 6 lived and are back outside. They seem to be doing well.

They are the cutest!!!

Take the one with the crooked beak to the vet, if his tongue looks worse every day that is...

So sorry, wish I could see the grave and pay my respects.

He’s doing fine though. He’s growing and eating at least. :D

Actually, the grave is the compost pile. ;)
