Duckling’s First Dip

It was a stupendously beautiful day here – perfect for the new ducklings first swim. Here are Puddles and Gabby testing out the water in my rubber tote.

Pekin Ducklings First Swim

This swimming thing takes a little getting used to. They weren’t too sure about the whole experience. All in all they lasted about five minutes before they’d had enough and were back to the brooder to warm up.

  1. They are so cute in their little pool. Your pond is coming along beautifully, it will be wonderful when it is finished and the ducks have a new home.

    I like the hummingbird ornament. It reminds me of Tennessee which was where I use to live. Thanks for bringing back those memories.
