… but I came across these photos while I was preparing for my school presentation about kids and farming and since at least one reader (hi Photoleaper!) thinks ducklings are cute I thought I’d post them.
My nephew bonding with one of this year’s babies.
Last year’s crop of Muscovy ducklings.
They are certainly cuter than the photos of the exploded pickled beets jar I was going to post… I tell you, it’s a thrill a minute around here!
Poor Bub boinked her beak!
I have no idea how this little muscovy duck damaged herself, but the top of her beak looks like it hurts. She’s safe and sound in a private room (in the kitchen) so she can have a bit of peace and quiet to recover.
When she has fully settled down, I’ll give the wound a good rinse and see if there’s anything else to be done. Keeping her clean, warm, and quiet for a couple of days is probably all it will take to have her on the mend.
