Awww… Aren’t Gussie and Jake the luckiest duckies around!
The first shot is so clear you can see the ridges? on the beak….so cool!
They are so beautiful.
Thanks for the saturday morning pick me up & give them scratchies from me!
Are these your ducks? We had a black female Muscovy duck in our neighborhood for years. She was overly friendly – to the point she would walk right up to the cars if they slowed down. She did chase the other ducks away (she was the only Muscovy, oddly) She stayed all year ’round. This past spring she was injured (a car? no one knows for sure) and they took her to a vet. We all thought “she” was a “he”. ha! They did have to put her under and now our pond is certainly missing her presence. The red on their face isn’t the most attractive, but it’s funny. I’m partial to them now. 🙂
How do you get your duckies so sweet and gentle? I have five, all boys, and they much prefer to run and hide in their shelter rather then get attention. All of them are older, two around 6, and three about 4.
Our duckies are five months old and we’ve had them since they were a couple of weeks old. We’ve spent a lot of time with them, so I suspect that has a lot to do with it? Some are still more approachable than others… the girls are the most approachable, and Gus likes being held the least. 🙂
We had Muscovis for a long time, they had many clutches of chicks too! We sold some at the aution. Alas when my oldest daughter left home and went in the military we sold the rest too. The hens are so sweet!!! the drakes, gotta watch them, ours got really protective and slashed my thumb one day. But love the hens and they lay a lot of eggs!!!!!
