So yesterday I decided the ducks & chicks had probably seen enough of their confined quarters so, between Hubs and I we brought them outside for an afternoon in the sunshine and grass.
The chicks took to the outdoors like they had been there their whole short life. The ducks on the other hand weren’t too sure, especially when our older girls came up to see what all the commotion was about. I wasn’t sure how my girls would feel about the new babies, but they didn’t seem to care one way or another. The chicks were a bit wary of the girls, but the ducks tried to get into the middle of the chicks for protection even though they are way bigger!
The ducks even had a little swim in the pool, but they were a bit too nervous about being away from the chicks… and at this point I’d say the ducks think they are chicks. Keep in mind when looking at the photos that the ducks are the same age as the chicks– can they grow or what?
