The ducklings aren’t quite two weeks old yet, but they are growing like weeds! Here they are today:

They are still in the house, but MUST go outside this weekend. They are going through way too much water (2 gallons per day), most of which goes on the floor of their cage. I hoped to build their outdoor “duck tractor” last weekend, but didn’t get to it; so it’s top priority for Saturday!

I am pleased with how tame they are turning out, being incubator babies and being handled a lot from being in the house. Though they still shy from hands, they don’t completely panic when picked up. So they’ll be nice for working with later.
