Some of you will remember (recall) my baby ducks from last March. Here is a Reuen pair (pronounced 'roo-au' I think). My 'French' is not so good!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rouen_Duck
I have enjoyed the ducks very much for just the visual treat of having them wandering about. Another bonus is the great tasting eggs they give me. The ducks are 'free-range' so the eggs are much more nutritious in the Omega 3 fatty acids and Beta Carotene as evidenced in the very orange yolks. Must be the grass and bugs in their diet!!! :-)

Great to see how big and handsome they have become, Larry.
I hope all the others have survived and done as well as these two.

Sylvia, 13 or the original 16 have survived. They are all doing really well now that they have matured and become more cautious with many predators about !

Mr Duck looks like a happy quacker...think he is trying to say something. I love his deep orange coloured legs, and the amazing iridescent green on his beautiful head..... Glad so many have survived, too:))

I like the orange legs too Barbara. He is a handsome fellow and I'm not sure what he was saying to the others, but it could have been a "heads-up" that the man who throws out the corn has just stepped out the door. It kind of looks like a protest though..." Hey, what is that thing you are pointing at me and my girl."

13 survived? that's a good rate! I never have eaten ducks eggs, is it tasty?
