A lost turkey and five fat ducks
In the meantime I have never seen anything grow at the rate the baby ducks are growing. Someone told me you need to eat them at about eight weeks old as they get too hard to pluck, I don't know if that is true or not but based on the other poultry I thought no way would they be big enough to eat at eight weeks old. Looking at them this morning maybe they will be. They are about three weeks old now and about half the size of their mother already. At first they were completely disinterested when I few them and were just free ranging in the garden but now they appear to be very hungry little fat ducks indeed.
