Water fowl babies

Holy crap, the ducklings, goslings, and turkeys came a week early. I’ll write about the poults tomorrow. Today I want you to focus on the fuzzy softness of these water fowl. The arrived in the Murray McMurray box via the post office. These guys–two goslings, seven ducklings– are so light, they’re like little puffs of air when you pick them up. They’re incredibly messy eaters and love to splash around their water dish (lined with rocks so they don’t get totally soaking wet and catch a chill). They grow really fast, too, I’ll be sure to take lots of photos and document their growth. A few years ago I lost both my geese and a few of the ducks to a marauding oppossom, this time around I’m going to be very careful about predators.
