Ducks and Geese!

Post by Stanley » Sun Aug 05, 2012 3:29 pm

Few photos of our new ducks, apparently all boys, were given to me from a lady that see me wanting ducklings/goslings, all settled in well, a little timid and prefer to stay in their bed, but they have a 12 x12 stable, so not short on room!
A photo of our older goose, Marge, who is in her mid teens atleast!
and a photo of 'mummy' goose

Excellent photos Stanley, what lovely birds. They are very lucky to have such a large and beautiful pond.

thank you!
once theyve come out their shells hopefully theyll be able to enjoy life, pond is great, the geese love it and we get canada geese and ducks come to stay too, theres also the overflow, although the pond is usually quite low, but all natural rainwater runs into it and that gets deep so theres another natural 'wet patch' which is full of wildlife :)

Marge is lovely!
The ducks are very easy to see if they are males or females. Just listen them.
If quack is female. If not is male. Even the males quack, but very low.
