Ducklings growing fast

08 Jun

They now stay most of the day around the house in the garden sheltering from the sun under a bush or snuggling close together if the weather is cooler. Mother duck is always close at hand watching every move. The drakes are now sometimes visiting for short spells but never feed with the ducklings. The ducklings chase each other and it appears that the males are tending to sit together and the females sit with their mother.
It is not that easy to differentiate what is what  but all will be revealed in time.
It is interesting to note that there is always one duckling that leads the way or stays separate.
