Look who moved in today! Four baby Pekin ducklings have taken up temporary residence in our garage.
These little babies are all Paul’s doing. He tells me that duck eggs are beyond wonderful. Growing up he had two Pekin ducks – Oscar and Susan. We’re not naming one Susan, but if there’s a boy in the bunch he’ll be an Oscar. We ordered six – five girls and one boy – but two didn’t survive the trip. Our farm continues to grow.
