Baby Ducks Arrive at The Wallow

Yesterday I bought 8 Pekin ducklings. They are set up in a brooder in my bathroom right now. When they lose their fluff in a couple of weeks, they’ll go outside. When they’re big enough, they’ll be free ranging, and I’ll make them a little pond. I plan to let them free breed. Whether there are more baby ducks at The Wallow later on is entirely up to these 8 and whatever they feel like doing. There are duck eggs in my future, and eventually some duck meat. Right now, I’ve got about two weeks to build them a home outside.
