Introducing the Ducklings

The ducklings spent the last few days in a play yard outdoors becoming familiar with the other farm critters. Today, we introduced Peep and Squeak to the rest of flock.


I expected the big ducks to chase off the babies, but for the most part the babies were ignored.


They didn’t seem to mind when Peep and Squeak parked themselves nearby for a post swim rest.


When it was time to head back indoors to the brooder, they led Hannah on a merry chase.


Once she finally caught Squeak, Peep raced after following them straight to the garage and back to the brooder. The ducklings are inseparable!
