My, How They’ve Grown!

You may remember my previous posts about ‘our’ Mama Duck with her eight ducklings.

The first time we saw them, there were nine, but within a day or so,  Mama had lost one. This photo is from July 10.

This weekend, I took this short video of the (noisy) eight arriving in our garage for lunch.

Just in the last week, they’ve started venturing a little further away from Mom and will chase away the other ducks for corn.

It’s true: children grow up so quickly.

  1. Absolutely love these babies.
    Very happy so many surviving!

  2. I know it’s been a lot of fun watching Mom and her kids enjoying their corn buffet there……counting “noses” (beaks?) and seeing them grow. Thanks for sharing !


  3. aw, it’s fun seeing how they’re getting along –

  4. what I see here from the ducklings is Trust x 8
    what I see here from mama is Trust x 1,000,000,000 …..

  5. What fun! And you are ever so kind to feed those “babies.” It will be interesting to see how many of them stick around when they’re older.
