New Ducks Arrived Today!

We've ordered some new ornamental ducks and they came today courtesy of the US Postal Service. They even called me at 6:30 a.m. to tell me the birds were here! We have a new pair of Chinese Mandarins that are "split for white." What that means is that the pair are the normal coloring as seen here. But 25% of their offspring will be this beautiful white variation! And new to our poultry menagerie this year are these Bahama Pintails, which are "split for silver." Here is a normal Bahama Pintail. So pretty!

And 25% of their offspring will be this silver variation!

Aren't they all so beautiful?! We are all excited about next spring's Mandarin and Pintail ducklings! Can't wait!
