It's now Day 3 for the Q Crew and they are obviously feeling quite at home in their walled in resort playpen.
Apparently ducks live a quite simple life.
They eat. They drink. They sleep. They poop and then jump in the pond. Then, they start the process all over again. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
We're still taking pix through windows so it's hard to get good clear up close and personal shots.
Ashley took some this morning and I thought I'd share a few of the little fluff and fuzz balls.
Isn't this one absolutely adorable? Looks like he/she is getting ready to attack the lily blossom :).
The little tykes are getting adventurous and brave enough to hop in the pond without Mama...she quietly sits on the warm rocks surrounding the pond and lets them splash and skid through the water. They LOVE it!
Of course, once out of the pond, they are ravenous. Ashley has been mixing up some duck starter a couple of times a day and they really get into their food...sometimes, quite literally. Nothing like standing right in the mushy stuff to make sure you get your fair share!
Mama has been taking them on short excursions around the yard...nothing too far from the food and the nest, though.
She actually let me water the yard today without any hissing...just a few little quacks to the ducklings to tell them to gather 'round. Believe it or not, they listen. Maybe she could share her secret with some of the moms who bring their kids to my local Costco :).
OK, gotta go now...will update when they do some new stuff.
