For today’s duckling post, we start with a cam picture from last night, then sleepy ducklings, then treat time. I’m starting to use their names more, too.
From the cam, Betty spreading her wings in the pool; her feathers are coming in nicely:
Edit to add: a GIF of Betty dunking and flapping her wings:
I had been plugging in the heat lamp each night, but now they’re old enough to not need it, so it has been discontinued. They still have the EcoGlow for now, though I’ll remove that in a few days.
Betty and Cora (I think) heading in for a swim, with Bert approaching in the pond:
Betty and one of the Rouens on the steps, Cora at the top, watched by Bert:
Cora, I believe (I haven’t quite locked down the differences between her and Clyde, but I’m reasonably sure, if only because the females are more into swimming):
Now that they’re mostly feathered out, and almost fully grown, I should do another duck name post. Once they’re in the pond, it’ll be harder to get as good pictures of them all.
