We have some new additions to the family, four call ducks. Well, two ducks and two drakes, and all of them gorgeous.
They are so full of character and are brilliant to watch. I have put their pond (an old children's paddling pool) outside the kitchen window so that I can watch them as I wash up.
I got them to eat the slugs and they are so good at it, my veggies look less munched than ever before! They are very small compared to other ducks and therefore do not make the garden muddy and messy.
One of the ducks has gone broody and so now we are waiting to see if we are going to be the proud carers of baby call ducks. I sneaked a peek at her nest when she went to get food, I was surprised to see 12 eggs. Fingers crossed lots of them make it.
