Okay so we had a bit of a set back and it took longer then we thought it would to complete but the Duck Pond is Officaily the new home of my call ducks. This morning it looked like this. Done but empty ...
So Mom Took me to town and got some ponds as we call them (okay they are cooking pans but the ducks don't know that)
It started to sprinkle and I got a bit nervous so I went to see what the chickens in the community coop thought the weather would do. They were all taking cover so I CHICKENED out and went inside and played a bit.
It is amazing how much fun you can have pretending to be a Butterball turkey .... I know I was in a weird Mood today don't ask why it just happens sometimes....
By the time Dad got home the rain had cleared and I couldn't put it off any longer. I guess I am kind of scared to keep them out in the open at night. Anyway, I put the White calls in and waited to see them react.
They all looked around and filed out into the outdoor pen .... Then the found the water .... I am guessing only two birds to a pan
After that we put the Greys out but we put them in the pen next to the whites and we had to move them over as the two males tried to fight over hens through the fencing.
The ones that were the most fun to let out where the West Indias .... They loved that they could flap their wings and get lift on the breeze ... It was a great thing to see.
After that they all spent hours swimming and splashing and cleaning and do whatever it is that ducks do in their time ...
Some even ventured in to take a look at their feed bowls but for the most part they stayed outside the rest of the day and on into nightfall.
This is now the view outside my window. Man I wish Mom's clothes line was somewhere else. (But I guess I shouldn't be so picky at least the ducks are by the house now)
And even though it is blurry you get the picture of my View at night as well ....
I guess I was still a little nervous because I kept going out to check on them throughout the night.
And don't tell anyone but at times I even sent someone special out to check them from time to time ...
Yeah, It is Ironman himself .... Told you I was in a weird Mood today.....LOL
