The Duckies Are Here!

Wow! A tiny little package! We ordered 20 Welsh Harlequin Ducks, and they sent 2 extras. We ordered from www.Holderreadfarm.com David Holderread wrote Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks. They all seem healthy and alert after a 36 hour trip from Oregon to Texas!

Pleas peeking at the little peepers!

Dipping their little bills in the water. One teaspoon of honey and a handful of chopped fresh garden greens in each quart jar.

Our reference to nail polish - we used Honeybee Gardens water based non-toxic polish. We dabbed a little spot on the right foot of the ducklings we presume are males. They have the darker bills. (But it did not stay on- it had come off in just a few hours- now how can we mark them, and they stay marked?!?)

Our Little Duck House, or "Duckingham Palace"

YUM!!! It's that time of year again! Peaches in the backyard, what could be better? After cutting and peeling peaches your hands smell fragrant for hours. We put the latest batch in the freezer for smoothies or ice cream.
