The New Addition(s)

Thanks to a "dear, sweet" family (remember Vance's - payback), we are now the proud owner's of 4 baby ducks! They got these for Laci and Megan and the girl's LOVE them, especially Laci!!!!! The Vance's gave us watering bowl (with antibiotics) and food and a food bowl! Megan got a new carseat yesterday, so we are using that box as their home. The idea is that we raise the ducks until they get feathers and then we can put them on our pond. We named them Jiggle, Jiggle, Bump and Wiggle. We can't tell them apart so we just made a rhyme so we could remember them and just say it all at once!

Laci is a permanent fixture here. She sits by them, makes sure their home is clean (they poop a lot) and make sure the lamp is on to keep them warm!






These ducks are so funny! They follow Laci around the garage!!! They stay in this tight group of 4 and if you take one away, they start squeeking! But, it's crazy how they follow Laci around!


They were using Laci's legs as a tunnel and going back and forth. They stopped halfway through to nibble at her pajamas!

So far, these are the easiest pets, I've ever had! I can't wait until tomorrow, to get some cute Easter pictures with the ducks!!!

Jiggle Jiggle Bump and Wiggle are so cute! I wish we would have gotten ducks, but the chicks are so easy... If only they would quit pooping in their water!
