  The kids are getting pretty good at getting the ducks back in their pen at night. Who needs a sheep dog when you have a pack of munchkins?

  The kids and the ducks engaged in a quacking contest this morning. The kids and then the ducks got louder and louder. It was hilarious.

  One of the khaki campbells has learned how to fly well enough to clear the 3' fence in their little corral. Fortunately, she doesn't show any interest in getting over the 6' perimeter fence as she instantly regrets being separated from her friends.

  The 18 month old that I watch has learned to open the gate to the duck pen. However, being a farm kid he closes it behind him like a good boy. He opens the gate, walks in, closes the gate and loves those ducks like crazy!

  My ducks are huge. I haven't figured out for sure how to tell who the boys and girls are yet, but I am going to have to figure it out before too long. Judging by the amount of squabbling going on in their run I think maybe we have too much testosterone.

  One of the ducks has a bloody wing. Someone keeps picking at the feathers on that wing. I have had to separate it with a timid runner for company so the wing can heal up. Any ideas?

  We found a robin egg in the barnyard today that had obviously lost its way. It was ice cold, but those sweet boys put it under our broody chicken just in case.

  The kids helped me to build the duck tractor for the ducks daytime pen today. It took about 10 times longer than it would have taken without their help, but they had a blast and learned a lot of valuable information.

  Baby Duckies are only 2 1/2 weeks old, but almost 12 " tall. Isn't that insane?!?

  The ducks love nothing better than eating treats out of the kids hands. Its a good thing they don't have teeth because they act like ravenous vultures!

  Mixed 2 runners in with the khakis. The Khakis were not terribly nice to them!

  I forgot how fast ducklings grow. They are only 10 days old and they have already quadrupled in sized! Then again they are pretty spoiled...

  Indian Runners are now mixed in with our Khaki Campbells. The kids can not believe how different they look.

  Introduced the first batch of baby Khaki Campbell ducklings to the kids today. It was love at first sight!

  Pint sized hand tools make for a ton of fun! Hand them their tiny shovels and send them off to work.

  The kids decided today that they like the dog doctor better than the people doctor. "She is nicer and she gives out dog treats."

  Farm kids...
But why do I have to go to the doctor for my shots? You can give them to me just like the cows!

  City kids....
"Nobody eats chickens!"
"You eat chicken nuggets, those are made out of chicken."
"No way, those are made out of nugget!"
