Peep and Squeak are finally getting out of the brooder and experiencing the great outdoors. We put the big ducks in their run early and let the babies explore alone.


We had to coax them into the pond. It’s a lot bigger than the bathtub!


Then they began to loosen up and enjoy paddling.


When I wandered away from the pond, they padded their way out and followed me. It was too cute. They met Clover along the way. I can’t imaging what they were thinking at their first encounter with a chicken, albeit a mini one.


When I parked myself on the porch, they paused a few feet short of the steps, waited and looked at me as if, “What do we do now?”
