Up until Monday, we were referring to Izzy and her brood as “Izzy and the kids.” On Monday evening, after making what was for us a very difficult decision, Don took Izzy’s two boys (drakes) to a new home. I never figured it would be so hard and that I’d feel so bad seeing them leave Morning Bray Farm.

Izzy wasn’t happy about seeing the boys go either, but she still has her girls.

They’ll be nine weeks old on Sunday and they’re still growing like weeds.

Augustus, a.k.a. Gussie, a.k.a. Gussie Boobala.

Izzy’s still smiling.

Beatrice is never far from Gus.

Their house.

We had to separate Harriet from the rest of the flock for a while because she wasn’t being very nice. She’s behaving much better now.

Sweet Hillary. Based on her size, she’s definitely a girl.

Izzy’s definitely a girl too. She and Hillary are the smallest of the flock.

Izzy loves taking long baths and basking in the afternoon sun.

We love little big baby ducks.
