My sweeties arrived on another grey day in Maine. They certainly have brightened thing up for me. More rain on the way for today....I did manage to get 5 loads of laundry dry yesterday...just barely. Very happy to have this wick cute distraction!
My son got a job at the local grocery store for the summer. He is working in produce and starts work at 7:00am. After dropping him off I headed to the post office to pick up my ducklings!
They came in this box via airmail...the only flying these flightless duck will experience. Home in about 7 minutes...
Here they are soooo cute. 13 ducks ~ they sent a spare. So the first step is to take them out one by one and dip their bill into the water to be sure they get a drink. Then they are free to roam about the brooder.
Ok~~ I am a new "mom" so lots of photos. If these are not enough you can now follow me on Instagram! http://instagram.com/injoyemporium They are a major distraction! But I finally left to get some other things done. But an hour later I came back with some greens. Chopped dandelion and tender grass.

I also noticed that one duck was acting lethargic. I picked her up and she had a bit of blood coming out of her vent. So I separated her from the others but, gave her a little window so she wouldn't feel so distressed by the separation.
I did manage to get some other work done between mooning over the ducks...
