For the last 2 years in April, we have had new baby chicks. Our flock of ladies now boasts 11, which is plenty enough for a home on half an acre within the city limits. This year, I finally gave in on the ducks my husband has been wanting for some time. We thought we were getting Khaki Campbells, but instead ended up with 2 Welsh Harlequins and 1 Ancona. And they have already stolen our hearts.
At the end of next month we are adding 2 runner ducklings. By then, these littles will be swimming around in a wading pool! :)
