New Friends

A few weeks ago we got a couple of new lady friends from a fellow church member...
They still have no names...I'm pondering Phyllis and Mary, not sure why. While browsing the tomato plants and watching the boys and hubby play baseball in the back yard, we got to talking about them...Phyllis just popped into my head. Not sure which one is Phyllis yet nor if Mary will stick too.
One of them has been laying an egg for us. It's been hit and miss since we got them and I'm not sure which one is laying. Now one of them is molting. It's the wrong time of year to be molting, the night temps are dipping into the high 40's. BBrrrrrr!!!! I'll be getting them a UV lamp soon so that their daylight hours remain up there and the egg laying continues.

Neither my husband nor I have ever had ducks. Everytime we hear them quacking while sitting in the living room, hubby chuckles. I guess it quacks him up! :)

We had ducks. Black Indian Walking Ducks. Pee and King would make great names!

Oh my stars! What? Ducks, WOW. Where are you keeping them? What do the boys thing? That is fun for all of you.
