The ducklings have grown up fast – they are now totally free-ranging in the pear garden with the other ducks.

They have lost their baby feathers and are now all white

recent ducklings

Don’t they look fat and tasty?

Looks like we will be having some roast duck in the next week …. not least because this might have happened yesterday and we are going need room in the outside duck shed soon…..

N.B. More duckling photos tomorrow – so far 11 have hatched I think
