My darling ducks.

I had to post some pictures of my sweet boys, just because they are cute, and besides I don't think I have ever introduced you to my most recent two, properly.

This is Dicky, his full name is Mr. Dick, from Charles Dickens novel David Copperfield. He is the only remaining Duck of the three that I hatched out myself. He is quite a bit more friendly and personal than my other duck -

who I call Tommy, in full, Mr. Tommy Traddles also from David Copperfield. Tommy is much calmer than Dick but doesn't like to get as close to people.

Like most Ducks, they love playing in puddles, hunting for slugs, (their favorite food) and dabbling in anything that is wet.

The place you will find them most, is in our pond, happy as Kings, paddling around and drilling holes in the bank. It is so much fun to watch my ducks. I am very thankful that God created these funny waddling, quacking creatures.
