Five Little Ducks

Finally we have managed to get some ducks to hatch. They came out between Christmas and New Year. They are very shy and have been hard to get a photo of. They run away whenever I get near by.
They are very cute. One of them is bright yellow. It is hard to believe how quickly they are growing, much faster than the chickens or turkeys in their first weeks. They are in the garden at the moment and i will leave them there unless they become destructive.


Ducklings are so cute. I'm currently looking for a drake for my Indian Runners.

Do you guys grow the ducks for meat, or just eggs?

Well we do plan to eat some of them, I was looking at them this morning and thinking that might be a bit of a challenge as they are so cute!
