Such Love Bugs!
The routine around here (duck wise) - was every morning I got up at sunrise and got the babies out of the brooder in the garage. I took them out to the play pen, fed and watered. I cleaned the brooder, washed the towels, and set it up for that night's use. While I worked, they splashed & napped. Other canal ducks wandered thru the yard and checked out the play-pen, peeped at the The Peepers and moved on. If we had a storm, I put a tarp over part of the play pen, to try and emulate the ducklings being protected under Mama's wings.
