They grow up so fast!

Seems like only yesterday they were sleepy little fluffballs:


Now they're two weeks old and life is all about eating, not sleeping.

They've moved into the big girls' coop, with their own corner fenced off where they can get away from the bossy hens, but still have plenty of room to roam around, and eat their own food, which the hens always seem to prefer to their layer pellets.

I just realized I never posted pix of the khaki campbell ducklings I received a few days after the chicks. Here they are, then:




And now:

Yes, they're adorable also, but more dimwitted animals you've never seen in your life. At least the chickens have the good sense to drink their water, not splash it out all over their bedding and then stand shivering in a soggy mess.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. A few years ago we had 3 khaki campbell ducks, one male and two females. Bad move. The male picked a mate and the other was always left out, so we called them Jacob, Rachel, and Leah. ;-)
