Launching of the Duckies
The ducks make their maiden voyage in “The Big Pond” today!
When we took the fencing down that separated the duck yard from the pond, it took them a few minutes to realize they could cross that magic line. Once they figured out they were free they made a beeline for the water. Fun was had by all.
They took to it like a duck takes to water. .
Testing the water of the half-filled pond.
A lot of splashing ensued.
Lots of joy was exhibited.
They checked out distant shores.
The chickens came to see what all of the fuss was about.
They worked up quite an appetite with all that exercise!
Sure beats that old mortar box!
