The ducklings have been living for a week or so in their new accommodation – the duckling palace. Kerry helped me transform a spider-ridden shed full of junk into a delux pad for ducklings. However, the weather has now warmed up, the ducklings are bigger, much bigger, and I wanted them to have access to the outside. So we built them a small enclosure with hurdles – you can never ever have too many hurdles – just saying.
They were quite curious about the outside
One of the Pekins watched them with curiosity
And then they discovered the little pool we had made them
They loved the water
They splashed about, dibbled and got quite dirty
but then they all had a wash and a preen
Why get out the easier way when you can clamber over the edge?
They are not yet three weeks old and are huge
