Duckling update!

by Posted On

“Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath.”  Michael Caine.

I have not been very good about keeping duckling updates!  But I have pictures to show their progress!  They are  46 days old today!  I have added a few images to show how they have grown over the past weeks. Ducklings are able to fly at 53 days old so it is almost time for them to move on from our pond.  It is a joy each year as we hatch new babies and have the opportunity to watch them grow.

The ducklings bask in the sun along the side of the pond, a view of their duck house in the background.

And today, they are hardly recognizable as baby ducks anymore.  In about a week’s time they will fly away in search of bigger and better ponds! Of course they always drop by for visits, but I don’t know if they will ever find a pond where the owner lovingly chases away hawks and other predators, or where they can nestle in the comfort of their very own duck house.  But I like to think so!

    Well, it’s hard to believe that they were little ducklings! My how they have grown. It would make me so sad to see them leave for I would feel like a part of me left with them. But, as with everything in life, its time for the ducklings to spread their wings in flight towards their next adventure.
