Meet our ducklings!

Ducklings in the Garden

Today I harvested half of my garlic crop. In the empty space I erected a temporary enclosure for the ducks and covered it with deer netting so they would be safe from hawks.

Now that they are out of the brooder we noticed that Dilly’s legs have not developed properly. She almost has to crawl to get where she is going and often stumbles. Despite this challenge she has been growing as fast as the other girls, but she likely would not fair well in the wild. I guess she’s lucky that she was sent to us since she’ll be living in a somewhat protected environment.

They also went for their first swim today. Take a look!
